Winning 70 Per Ct. Of Its Events And Taking Titles 
In Baseball And Lacrosse, Maryland Enjoys Great Year 

"CHASTENING the Southern Confer- 
■*■ ence baseball title and the Nation- 
al Collegiate lacrosse crown to laurels 
already picked up in the winter and 
having good seasons in every other 
spring sports, Maryland wound up one 
of its finest years in its history during 
the 1935-36 term. 

Sending varsity and freshman teams 
into difficult schedules in football, box- 
ing, basket-ball, lacrosse, baseball, 
track and tennis, the Old Liners set a 
pace matched by few institutions that 
battle it out in such fast company. 

Record Is Exceptional 
Maryland won 59 varsity contests. 
lost 23 and tied one, while the year- 
lings scored 33 victories, suffered 13 
reverses and deadlocked once. 

This is better than a 70 per ce'nt 
winning average for both the varsity 
and frosh teams, an exceptional i

Boxing Has Tough Luck 

Varsity boxing', though it finished in 
the red in the won and lost column, had 
one of its most interesting seasons 
since the pastime was established at 
College Park and with a little better 
luck might easily have captured the 
majority of its meets. 

In addition to the bigger titles, the 
Terps led the State competition in bas- 
ket-hall, baseball and football, and fig- 
ured heavily in the selection of all-star 
State athletes. 

Bernie Buscher also was chosen all- 
Southern Conference basketer, Bill 
Guckeyson was all-Southern Confer- 
ence football back, while Jack Kelly, 
goal; Lou Ennis, defense; Herb Brill, 
John Christhilf and Charlie Ellinger, 
attack, were named on the ail-Amer- 
ican lacrosse ten. 

Anion Mehring, a member of Mary- 
land's rifle team, also was selected as 
a member of the all-American college 

team. {Continued on Page 6)

team, they are about complete. 

Adjustment of a dat? or two in track 
•out all that is to be done to com- 
plete the various cards, with the ex- 
ception of that of the racketers. And 
the last mentioned seldom is filled un- 
til late in the fall preceding the season. 

The Terps football, baseball, boxing, 
basket-ball, lacrosse and track engage- 
ments call for meeting with teams in 
the East. South and Mid-West, and

tition that marked the 1 1»::.",-:;r, term 
and others that have preceded.

Guckeyson Standing Alone 

As A Four-letter Athlete 

Bill Guckeyson, the versatile track 
man, in the field events and ace foot- 
ball player, became a four-letter man 
with the close of the baseball season, 
during which he played right field reg- 
ularly after reporting somewhat after 
the start of the campaign. 

Guckeyson temporarily was out of 
track on account of a nerve ailment in 
his shoulder and then turned to the 
diamond. His previous letters came in 
track, football and basket-ball. 

He returned to track in time to win 
the javelin title in the District A. A. U. 
title meet and to go into the Olympic 

He is the only four-letter man in 
school, as Bernie Buscher, who had 
gained four insignias was in the grad- 
uating class. Guckeyson will be a sen- 
ior next fall.

to Canada to play the Canadians in the 
Lally Cup series. Lou Ennis, defense, 

and Charlie Ellinger, attack, were oth- 
er Maryland men to be invited, but had 
to decline. These men selected by the 
United States Lacrosse Association, 
were regarded as ail-American choices. 

Boxers Student Leaders 

Members of the boxing team will 
play a big part in ruling the Maryland 
student body during the 1936-37 term. 
Tom Birmingham, 125-pounder, has 
been elected president of the Student 
Government Association and Mike 
Lombardo, who battles in either the 
155-or-165-pound class, has been named 
head of the Men's League. Birming- 
ham is from Sparrows Point. 
Baltimore Group Makes Headway 
Fine progress is being made by the 
Alumni Group in Baltimore. The Ren- 
ncrt Hotel has been established as 
headquarters and two meetings a month 
are being held. During the summer 
only one special outing is being plan- 
ned in the nature of a dinner dance, 
July 30, at the Summit Club. Ches. 
Tawney, and George Weber are giving 
the club a big push. Call "Ches" when 
in Baltimore, Plaza 2654. The club 
meets on Mondays and Wednesdays.

In Baseball And Lacrosse, Maryland Enjoys Great Year 

(Continued from page ; i 

Coleman Headley, middle distance 
runner, and Frank Cronin, pole vaulter 
and quarter miler, added individual 
Southern Conference titles to boost the 
list of Terp championships. 

Number Of Stars Co 

Maryland has lost such linemen as 
Ed .Mmion. guard; Carl Stalforl and 
Charlie Callahan, tackles; Lou Funis 
and Bernie Buscher, ends, in foot hall; 
Buscher and Vie Willis in basket-ball; 

Willis in baseball, Ennis and Jim Hart, 
Herb Brill, John Christhilf and Pearce 
Maccubbin in lacrosse; Spike Webb, 
boxer; a half dozen of its high-scoring 
trackmen, including Bob Slye, hurdler 
and broad jumper, and a trio of its best 
net men. 

However, except for football line- 
men and lacrosse defense men, the 
teams of 1936-37 appear pretty well 
fixed to begin their next campaign.

Largest Freshman (lass 

In History Registered 

An increase Of approximately L6 
per cent in the freshman class v 
the latest report from the registrar's 
Office. Returns were greater in the 

upper classes than in previous yean, 
which means a student body of con- 
siderably more than 2,000 in the Col- 
lege Park Schools for the ensuing year. 
The registrations for the profession- 
al schools of the University in Balti- 
more are not held until the latter 

pari of September. Here, however, the 

enrollment is more constant because 
of the limited facilities required for 
each school. The combined enrollment 
for the year is expected to be mo 
than 3,500 students. It will be the 
largest enrollment in the history of 
the University, which is beginning its 
one hundred and twenty-eighth year. 

News Making Changes 

Beginning with the October issue, 
tli*- NEWS will start a new type of pub- 
lication. Advertisements have been 

made a part of the publication which 

it is felt will add greatly i" n- attrac- 
tiveness as well as making it possible 
for an increase in si/.e. 

For some time it has been known 
that the NEWS should be increased in 

size and that advertisements would 
make this possible. It is howeVi 

alize his pari in making the NEWS an 
outstanding publication. More sub- 
scriptions are needed and additional 
news about fellow Alumni. 

JfoUl A Ociation, a growing organ- 
ization, is endeavoring to keep p 
with the great strides being made by 
its Alma Mater. Send in your help.

Alumni Luncheon Club 

It has been the desire of your Alumni 
ociation officers to get more lun- 
cheon or dinner clubs organized. The 

Maryland graduates in every town of 
any size should have at least one clay 
each month when they meet, if for only 
a few minutes, in an informal way and 
discuss the old school. Many worth 
while suggestions for the betterment 
of the Association would result. 

New York and Washington are now 
operating luncheon get-togethers sue- 
fully. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia 
meet in the evenings, Baltimore, or- 
ganized last spring, is making good 
headway. It is expected that many 
more will be organized throughout the 
e in the near future. 

The only way to keep the old spirit 
is to get-together, swap yarns and 
keep in touch with the happenings of 
your Alma Mater. 

Booklet Sent To Alumni 

About the first of this month, a pro- 
spectus of the University was sent each 
Alumnus. The purpose was to give 
the old grad an up-to-date view of the 
campus and its activities in pictures. 

Comments from Alumni on this par- 
ticular gesture will )>e appreciated by 
the officers. Should such meet with 
favor among the Alumni, it will likely 
peated each year. 

Many of the old triads of ten years 
Or more ago who have not returned to 
the campus for B visit can readily see 
what a revelation has taken place. It 
all goes to prove that more Alumni

Grads In Soil Erosion 

In the Soil Erosion project office of 
the Federal Government for the west- 
ern part of Maryland, we find Dr. O. 
i . Bruce, former Professor of Geology, 
as State Coordinator. His secretary is 

Winifred Kirstetter, '34, a member of 

Kappa and the lieutenant commander 
of the office. 

Ra> Stevens, '27. is the Assistant 
Engineer and Ralph Ruble, '34, is Jun- 
ior Soil Surveyor of the project. Mer- 
riell Hershberger, '29, is the Assistant 
Soil Scientist, while Robert Haas, '34, 
and John Bowie, '33, are the Junior En- 
gineers. Fred White, '34, is another 
Engineer on the project at this White 
Hall Camp. Maryland grads are play- 
ing an important part in this great un- 

Arthur Bowers, '31, is now located 
with the Campbell Soup Company in 
New Jersey. Bowers' rise is interest- 
ing from the standpoint that he start- 
ed as a caddy, was picked up by an 
Alumnus and helped through college. 
He is now making good and has re- 
paid all of his obligations. His ad- 
dress is 227 King Highway, Audubon, 
New Jersey. 

Short Course For Firemen Held 

For the seventh year, the University 
has conducted a Short Coui-se for the 
Volunteer Firemen of the State. On 
September 1, 2, 3, some 150 to 200 men 
attended this course in which the in- 
structors were men who have had 
twenty or more years of fire-fighting 
experience. Over sixty companies in 
the State were represented. 

The firemen received instruction in 
several phases of fighting and self-pro- 
tection. Attacking actual fires, apply- 
ing water and chemicals, wearing gas 
masks, saving property and life, were 
all included in the comprehensive course. 

A high light of the course, was the 
lecture by Chief Ross Davis of the 
Philadelphia Fire Department who has 
spent forty years in the fire-fighting 
game. Prof. S. S. Steinberg, acting 
dean of Engineering, was the director 
of the course. 

<1 Robert A. Hitch, '29, is a special 
investigator for the Veteran's Admin- 
istration in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 
He is a graduate in engineering and 
then finished law. He is a member 
of Lambda Chi Alpha and O. D. K. 
His experiences in Puerto Rico have 
been many.

With A Fine Array Of Backfield Talent, Maryland's Grid 
Coaches And Players Strive To Solve Problems In Line 

Blessed with a fine array of backs 
who are ready to go places over ground 
and through the air. the Maryland 
football coaches are faced with line 
problems that must be solved if the 
Terps are to come out on the long end 
of the horn this season. 

Facing 11 games. 10 of them of 
major caliber. Maryland is striving to 
get the needed linemen out of a rather 
inexperienced but willing and spirited 
bunch of aspirants. The squad in all 
totals only 35. more than a dozen less 
than received the call to try for jobs. 

However, there is not a note of pes- 
simism in the Maryland camp, as Head 
Coach Frank Dobson, Jack Faber and 
Al Heagy and the players co-operate 
in a great effort to fill the gaps left 
vacant by the graduation of such ex- 
ceptional forwards as Lou Er.nis and 
Bernie Buscher, ends; Carl Stalfort 
and Charlie Callahan, tackles; Ed Mini- 
on, guard, aK ulars, and a num- 
ber who did fine service in reserve 

Snm«. Notable Muck- 
Bill Guckeyson, ace runner, and kick- 
er; Charlie Ellinger, field general; 
Coleman Headley. fleet all-around per- 
former, and John Gormley. star block- 
er and defensive player, all 1935 regu- 
lars; Ed Daly, another letter man 
who is almost a duplicate of Gormley 
in efficiency; Waverly Wheeler, who 
proved his worth last season; Jim 

Meade, the sophs main contribution, 
and others give the coaches a ball tot- 
ing array that also is highly capable 
on defense. 

Maryland has a pretty good nucleus 
around which to build a line in Vic 
Willis and Blair Smith, ends; Ed Flet- 
cher and John Birkland, tackles; Bill 
WOlfe and Mike Surgent, guards; arc! 
Frank DeArmey, center; all of them 
"M" men in 1935. However, Surgent 
and DeArmey were the only regulars, 
although Willis figured prominently in 
most of the games. However, with the 
exception of Charlie Zulick, a tackle; 
John McCarthy, an end; and Bill Bry- 
ant, a 1935 back; shifted to the wing 
position, all of the needed forwards to 
complete two sets of linemen essential 
to success in a tough campaign, must 
come from the ranks of sophs who 
lack development. 

And no matter how great the back- 
field talent, no team ever will meet 
with marked success unless it has a 
capable forward wall and sufficient re- 
placements to keep it solid. 

Birals Are Formidable 

Not counting St. John's, of course. 

every foe of Maryland for 1936 is rated 

nger than in 1 '■>'■','>. Maryland with 

its line prol«]. particularly under 

• two big ga 
with Virginia Tech and North Caro- 
lina, aa experta are picking the Tar- 
heels and Gobblers to be second and 

third in the Conference standing at 
the finish. Duke is the favorite. 

After these two battles, all the Terps 
have to do is to oppose Virginia, Syra- 
cuse, Florida, Richmond U., Virginia 
Military Institute, Georgetown, Wash- 
ington and Lee and Western Mary- 
land. All have great prospects, with 
Florida, V. M. I., Georgetown and 
Washington and Lee due to show the 
greatest improvement over last fall. 

But regardless of what may happen 
or what their record may be, the Terps 
may be depended upon to play intelli- 
gent, scrappy and interesting football, 
and what more could be asked?

It will be a delight to many to know 
that good progi-ess is being made on 
the new dairy barns, and that in due 
course of time, the old building will be 
obliterated. The new barns are being 
erected on that part of the campus 
north of the poultry plant near Paint 
Branch. It is a PWA project. 

Another project — being watched with 
interest, is the Bureau of Mines build-

of Soils, U. S. D. A. He is located at 
Iowa State, Ames, Iowa. 

Columbia System 

Following a system somewhat simi- 
lar to the one at Columbia, the appli- 
cations for admission were passed on 
by a Director of Admissions. Wm. M. 
Hillegeist, '12, who was for many years 
Registrar, now holds this position. 

Freshmen began to arrive on the Hill 
at College Park as early as 7 A. M. 
Monday, September the 14th, and it 
was but a short time before they were 
University students attending to their 
proper assignments. 

A new system of registration was 
instituted at the University this year. 
Heretofore, it was to the Dean's office, 
then to the Library, and to the Sec- 
tioning Committee, etc. This year every- 
thing was carried on in the Gymna- 
sium. Each new student, as he en- 
tered the front door was met by an in- 
formation director, and his routine 
prescribed. Everything was attended 
to in this building. It took just about 
one-third of the time to register a 

Special Notice 

Alumni are here informed that spe- 
cial consideration will be given their 
applications for tickets to all athletic 
contests during the year. There will be 
held until a specified time, a certain 
number of tickets in the reserved sec- 
tion for Alumni. To procure these 
seats it will be necessary for Alumni 
to write the Athletic Office. It will be 
impossible to hold any seats in this sec- 
tion unless checks accompany the or- 

This procedure will assure the Alum- 
ni who order tickets in advance to be 
seated with Maryland grads. Definite 
specifications as to time limits, etc., will 
be more fully described in the next

I consider it an honor to be elected 

n-nt of our Alumni Association 
of the University of Maryland. I 
een interested in the Alumni As- 
sociation over since my graduation 
from the College Park Schools in 1900 
and from the Medical School in L904. 
My son. Frank Bines, Jr. attended and 
graduated in 1933 at College Park. 
Convinced as I am that the Alumni 
- a highly useful purpose, I have 
continued my interest in the Associa- 
tion because I believe that it is a vital 
link between the University and its 
former students. I do not think any 
educational institution worthy of the 
name can have a healthy, progressive 
development without the good will and 
active support o: its alumni. 

I: is my belief that the officers of 
ation must assume genuine 
responsibility. Therefore. I assure you 
that I intend to do everything in my 
power to do what a president should 
do. I am sure that I can speak for 
the other officers when I say we in- 
tend to have a constructive program 
of activity this year and that we shall 
do our utmost to see that it is carried 
out. Our first endeavor is the Alumni 
News. You will notice this issue is an 
enlargement over the previous ones. 
Your support, criticism and sugges- 
tions are solicited. 

Prom long experience, I know an 
Alumni Association President is only 
as good as the cooperation he receives. 
In the last analysis, what we do or 
fail to do this year will depend on you. 
I want you. — I urge you. — to take part 
in the work of our Association. I be- 
lieve now to a greater degree than ever 
before, the Alumni Association can be, 
and is a vital force to further the in- 
terests of the University and of its 

Do not forget Homecoming on Nov-

Sincerely yours,

pointed his fellow alumnus and form-

to the Supreme Court Bench of

on the appointment because it "marks 
the first time, as far as I can recall,

li^oK many years it has been the i 
A ton of the University to set aside a 

Bpeciflc Saturday during the fall sea- 
son as Homecoming for the Old Grade 

-a time when entertainment will be 
provided by a visiting rival of the 
gridiron pastime. 

When the day is over, it is some 
times said that Homecoming was 
marred because "Old Alma .Mammy" 
\\ nit down in defeat. This is far from 
the actual fact. A small return of 
old grade and the disappointment that 
comes to those who expected to see 
their old school mates, separated by 
many years, is the only chance of 
spoiling a gala occasion. 

It is enjoyable to gather around 
the fireside and hear the undergrade 
talk with great enthusiasm about the 
heroes of the gridiron as fellow stu- 
dents but better still is the refreshing 
talk with Tim, Tom, Jim or Harry and 
maybe Sallv, about old times "on the 

What a wonderful feeling to go back 
to the campus at Homecoming and see 
those whose fellowship has not been 
dimmed by intervening years. What 
a revelation, to swap yarns, tell and 
hear experiences since the days when 
you were undergraduates together and 
then back in memory's lane recall how 
they looked when they were flashing 
cleats in a notable gridiron victory. 

What a great opportunity to lay 
aside the old daily grind and get into 
the swim of campus enthusiasm, relive 
for a day the good times of the past, 
even though it be in memory — with 
your pals of yester years. 

If you are not at Homecoming, Sat- 
urday, November 14, you will miss a 
real day, but still further you will be 
missed by many. Do not disappoint 

Curley Byrd Still A Fan 

Dr. H. C. Byrd (still Curley) has 
not lost his interest in athletics despite 
the demands of the presidency of the 
University. He says he is going to 
see every football game the Terps 
play this year. It is about all the rec- 
reation he gets. 

Football Program Growing 

Maryland is getting out its own foot- 
ball program this year, with Bill Hoi 
tel editor, and is hoping before the 
>n is over and in the future to 
have a worthwhile publication. The 

issue for the opening game with St. 
John's met with many complimi 
and it is planned to effect more im- 
provement^ as time marches on.

II'HII.K a few weeks' trip through 
"' several European countries can 
hardly make one an authority on the 
social, political, and economic problems 
of the Old World, it quite definitely 
will contribute to a few permanent im- 

For instance, to many Americans vis- 
iting France this summer the spirit 
of "Lafayette, we are here" has been 
changed to "Lafayette, good-bye forev- 
er." The amazing pleasure that French- 
men in hotels, restaurants, and public 
services seem to derive from insulting 
their transient guests was the talk of 
a good many returning tourists groups, 
and this, along with French dirtiness 
as compared with American or other 
European standards accounted for no 
small number of shortened visits in 
gay Paris. 

Political disturbances in Paris have 
left their mark. Walls are marked with 
"A bas La Rocquc" and "Vive le com- 
munisnie," and more concrete still, the 
walls of the Hotel Crillon still show the 
bullet marks where the soldiers fired 
on the mob a few months ago. It seems 
quite likely that fear of Germany is 
all that keeps France from blowing up. 

Germany appeals far more to the 
average American taste than France. 
Returning travellers commented on the 
clean, healthy appearance of the Ger- 
mans, and their courtesy, friendliness, 
and honesty. Perhaps, too, the idea of 
a German beer garden with a lively 
Bavarian band, a plate of wurst and 
cheese, and large family tables of sing- 
ing young people is more attractive 
than the Parisian amusement of sitting 
at a table on the sidewalk of a dusty 
boulevard drinking either wine or bad 
coffee and speculating on whether the 
passers-by come from Iowa or Mich- 

Merry England is now merrier than 
it has been for some years. A commer- 
cial boom, thousands of tourists, and an 
improving employment situation con- 
tribute to the merriment. England is

to be continually interesting and just 
enough like home to be always com-

home of the Arundels, whose name ap- 
so often on a Maryland map. 
Many of the old churches of London 
have tablets to the memory of the ear- 
ly proprietaries of Maryland. The last 
lence of the Lords Baltimore, a 

large house at Woodcote, is now the 
country club of the Royal Automobile 

There are still some things to be said 
about London. All the new policemen 
have to be educated in a private school, 
so they say, and are uniformly courte- 
ous; there are no chain drug stores 
with sandwich counters; the subway is 
quiet; and there are no Coca Colas. 

The attitude toward a future War is 
an interesting side-light on popular 
feeling. The French are sure that the 
Germans are busy nights thinking up 
German names for the streets of Paris; 
the Germans are quite sure that they 
will soon have to polish off Russia and 
are certain they can do it; and the 
young Englishmen are naive enough 
to believe that they can stay out of the 
next war. 

War talk is ir the background of 
the conversations on the continent, but 
there is little enthusiasm among the 
young people who will fight the bat- 
tles. The young men are quick to real- 
ize there is quite a difference between 
wearing a neat looking uniform in the 
streets and in wearing service uniforms 
in the trenches. Emphasis on aviation 
provides a litttle of the romantic war 
talk. The French bluster; the Germans 
plan; and the English hope. 

University To Have 
Historical Museum 

Work to establish a state historical 
museum at the University is going for- 
ward under the supervision of Prof. 
Leland G. Worthington, '25, of the 
College of Education. Worthington is 
collecting rare documents, books, old 
weapons, and furniture with a view to- 
ward creating interest in the develop- 
ment of Maryland since the early Cal- 

On display now at the University of 
Maryland Library are two original land 
grants, one by the Third Lord Balti- 
more to Peter Pinxton, in 1710, and 
the other by the Fifth Lord Baltimore 
to John Worthington, in 1726. These 
were loaned to the University by John 
Bowie of Anne Arundel County, and 
Professor Worthington. Two early 
posters, one advertising the presenta- 
tion of three plays at Annapolis in 1798, 
and the other soliciting subscriptions 
for the Maryland Herald of Easton, 
one of the State's oldest newspapers, 
are also on display. 

The museum is the outgrowth of a 
thesis by Professor Worthington on 
Maryland history, and is being added 
to by contributions of the citizens of 
the State. 

American Chemical Society 
Hears Dr. H. B. McDonnell 

At the sixteenth anniversary meet- 
ing of the American Chemical Society 
held in Pittsburgh, the University was 
represented by Dr. L. B. Broughton, 
'08, the head of the Chemistry Depart- 
ment; Dr. H. B. McDonnell, professor 
of Agricultural Chemistry; Dr. N. L. 
Drake, professor of Organic Chemis- 
try; Dr. C. E. White, '23; and Dr. R. C. 
Wiley, associate-professor of Chemis- 

Many noted scientists from all parts 
of the world attended the meeting and 
were surprised to learn of the wide 
spread uses of new materials made 
every day from unlikely sources, as re- 
vealed by American chemists. 

Dr. H. B. McDonnell presented a pa- 
per on ozone, the purest of air, reveal- 
ing that the earth is surrounded by a 
poisonous gas. The following is an ex- 
cerpt from the Literary Digest's report 
on the meeting. 

"Dr. H. B. McDonnell, of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, raised guinea pigs in 
air rich in ozone, a form of oxygen. 
Even a little shortened the animal lives. 
A high concentration acted about like 
chlorin, one of the war gases. Fortu- 
nately, there isn't much ozone in the 
atmosphere, and what there is lies high 

"Things are delicately balanced on 
this earth; if there were more ozone, 
we should all be poisoned. If there 
were less we'd be scalded to death by 
ultra-violet rays from the sun, most of 
which are absorbed by this thin blanket 
of gas."

By Frank DOBSON. Head Football Coach 

THE A LIMN I NEWS has asked me 
to discuss the football situation at 
your Alma Mater, which I shall en- 
to do as briefly anil frankly as 
None of us is interested in the losses 
we have suffered thru the usual and 
natural channels, but what we would 
know in the main is — "who will 
play" and "how will we do." 

I feel qualified in a measure to write 
of the former, but shall refrain from 
commenting on the latter — merely sav- 
ing that "I would like to know." 

The big issue in the development of 
a football team is the line and > nee 
the key position in the forward wall on 
se as well as offense is center we 
will begin our discussion at that impor- 
tant post. 

Frank DeArmey. who came from 
Windber, Pa., as a likely fullback, was 
ed to this position last fall and 
fulfilled our fondest hopes. He is fast. 
strong and big. and much is expected 
fit him this year. He is nearly six feet 
^y.ll and weighs in the neighborhood of 

Next in importance is the young man 
who must share this responsibility, and 
here we find a highly capable workman 
in Bob Walton from Tech H. S., Wash- 
ington, whose rapid development has 
made this position well fortified. In 
contrast, however, to DeArmey, Bob 
the same situation with only 164 
pounds, a tribute to his spirit and cour- 

The men who flank the center can no 
longer be clumsy, slow, heavy chaps, 
but must have the speed and drive of 
a back on offense to qualify for the 
guard jobs, and we are fortunate to 
carry over from last year Billy Wolfe 
and Mike Surgent who are dependable 
blockers in and out of the line and hard 
g charters on defense. Each car- 
ries about 190 pounds and much of the 
ss of our running and passing at- 
tack depends upon them. John De 
Armey, Alex Males and Leroy Witzke 
came up from the freshman team and 
have made some progr dally 

the 1. 

•ie important tackle positions we 
feel our losses most acutely since ex- 
perience is essential to good tackle play 
regardless of one's physical attributes. 

Birkland, a big rangy six foo: • 

inds is the only veteran, and he 
is capable of playing better football 
than his work last fall indicated. It is 
to be hoped that he will measure up to 
his sophomore standard in which case 
one half of the starting tackle problem 
will be solved. 

Ed Fletcher, who previously played 
guard, has been switched to tackle and, 

while not endowed with a tackle's dis- 
position, has shown marked improve- 
ment to date and at this writing is our 
choice to team with Birkland. How- 
ever, his 180 pounds tan only stand the 
gaff so long against the high class of 
opposition we meet for 10 consecutive 
weeks and we are working overtime to 
find replacements. Egnall and Page, 
sophomores, and Zulick, senior, are best 
qualified physically, but only Page of 
this trio has shown any inclination to 
give ami take. There must be a real 
love for the game to play tackle since 
you are bombarded from all sides and 
only hard fighting, courageous big boys 
can play there. We hope for a change 
of heart in Egnell and Zulick whose 

Frank Dobson 

efforts, so far, have been disappointing 
to all of us. 

The situation at the ends has bright- 
ened considerable since practice started 
and we would have a superb line if the 
same type of fight existed for the tack- 
le jobs that we find at the flanks. From 
the standpoint of experience big Vic 
Willis outranks the other candidates 
and the same can be said about his 
ability as a pass receiver; but thi 
must be a vast improvement in his 
blocking and defensive work before he 
can be stamped as an outstanding wine- 
man, and only the hard fames ahead 
will prove that. He has entered his 
last season with a fine spirit and we 
expect him to enjoy his best reason. 

Blair Smith, a substitute last year, 
i~ vastly improved. He is an excellent 
blocker and hard fighter and with the 
improvement made to date in his de- 
fensive work he has earned the other 
starting end. 

Nick Budkoff, a strapping youi . 

from Lynn, Mass., lacks only speed to 
be a standout at end. His fierce charg- 
ing and accurate tackling, however, 

make it difficult to keep him out of the 
picture, and ai present it is our plan to 
make full use of his versatility and UB6 

him at tackle a- well as end. Tins pro- 
cedure 18 farther necessary because of 
the utter lack of reserves in the line. 

John McCarthy and Bill Bryan:, eon- 
verted backs, are making a Btrong hid 
for these positions. Each is a capable 
pass receiver and has made progress 
in practice. The big question to be an- 
swered now is just how tough and ag- 
gressive they will be under tire. 

As we approach the layman's unit of 
a football team, the backfield, we find 
much to be thankful for, but in all hon- 
esty not as much as we are credited 
with in quantity. Two complete sets 
of backs can be called upon and our 
schedule will require their constant use. 

Heading this list of talented ball car- 
riers is Bill Guckeyson of Bethesda, 
Maryland, who can be truthfully called 
a product of Maryland's sane athletic 
policy and the best half-back it has 
ever been my pleasure to coach. This 
young man not only possesses all the 
requisite qualifications of a great foot- 
ball player and all around athlete, but 
his quite unassuming manner of carry- 
ing his honors makes for a type of 
leadership that must be inborn. 

At this date this greyhound of a half- 
back is inactive because of a strained 
muscle in the upper leg, and by the 
time this message reaches you, the 
press will have broadcast information 
as to the seriousness of his ailment. 
Naturally, such an outstanding player 
as Bill exerts a mental as well as phys- 
ical influence on a team, but to the 
everlasting credit of the fine bunch of 
boys in our squad no evidence of pes- 
simism is to be found. 

Our team will be directed by Charlie 
Ellinger, of Baltimore, whose rise from 
a substitute end to quarterback has 
been phenomenal. He carries his re- 
sponsibility lightly and the team re- 
flects his fighting qualities and leader- 
ship. His drive and tackling are great. 
Coleman Headley, of College Park, will 
nominally be listed as a halfback but 
his versatility equips him for van 
duties and he will carry on for Ellinger 
when necessary. Coleman is an excel- 
lent dodger and nearly matches Guck- 

n's speed. He is a hard accurt 
blocker and fine tackier. 

We are well fixed at fullback witii 
John Gormley of Tech H. S., Washing- 
ton, and Ed Daly of Peddie. H 
in the line, we find two hoy- who arc- 
typical coach' . because the im- 
portant factors they are to the 
succe unnoticed except on de- 
fense. The rno-t unselfish players on 
any man's team arc the guards and 
blocking back- and their p uld

Flashy Backs Will Add Color To Homecoming Game 

With Virginia Military Institute On November 14 



■*■ " tilt with Virginia Military Insti- 
tute on November 14 promises to be 

one of the must colorful, closest and in- 
teresting games the Old Liners ever 
have played with the Cadets. 

In the first place, the Cadets doubt- 
less have the best team that has worn 
their colors in recent years, and pos- 
sess one of the flashiest backfields in 
the South. 

Trzeciak, V. M. L's sophomore quar- 
terback, has been one of the sensations 
of the grid campaign. He's probably 
the best back to come up from a year- 
ling team in Virginia in years, and a 
triple-threater in every sense of the 
word. His passing, kicking and run- 
ning have been sensational, and his 
dash of 101 yards for a touchdown 
against South Carolina on a fake-kick 
play may go into the record books as 
the longest run of 1936. 

V. M. I. has three other brilliant ball 
toters in Roberson and Clark, the se- 
niors, and Kovar, another sophomore 


Terp Backs Good, Too 

DI'T Maryland also has its share of 
** speed and color in its backfield 
with Bill Guckeyson, Coleman Headley, 
Charlie Ellinger and John Gormley, 
last year's regular quartet; Jim Meade 
and Charlie Weidinger, a pair of scin- 
tilating sophs, and Waverly Wheeler 
and Ed Daly, who have displayed their 
prowess in many games. 

Probably the outstanding linesmen 
on the teams are Willis, Maryland's 
great all-around end and pass snagger, 
and Farley, V. M. I. guard who could 
play on any man's eleven. 

There, of course, are others on both 
■us with marked grid ability and, 
;i- far a^ could be forecast when this 
was written, a 50-50 contest is in sight. 
Maryland bad a tough time beating a 
le-> capable V. M. I. team last year, 
6 to 0. 

Maryland and V. M. I. first met back 
in 1906, just .'!<) year- ago, and have 
played II games in all. Of these the 
Old Liners have won eight, the Cadets 
four, and two have ended in tie>. 

Plaj Thrilling Game 
DROBABLY the most thrilling battle 
*■ ever staged between the Old Liners 
and Cadets, one thai many of the 

alumni will recall with a thrill, was 
played back in 1916 at College Park 
when Maryland won, 15 to 9. 

In that game, Maryland led 3 to 
and .'5 to 2 early in the contest, trailed 
G to 9 at the half and was in command 
in the last part or" the battle. Michael 
made Maryland's only touchdown, 
Jamie Smith kicked a field goal and 
Untz Brewer booted two. 

Others to play for Maryland were 
Capt. Lyman Oberlin, M. Rich, Ralph 
Into, C. C. Tarbutton, A.A. Murrell, 
H. M. (Fuzzy) Coster, W. M. Kish- 
paugh, W. B. Posey, Dutch Axt, Hobby 
Derrick and Ike McDonald. R. S. Dear- 
styne was manager and J. H. Rems- 
burg was assistant manager. 

Oberlin and Brewer are all-time all- 
Maryland players at tackle and half- 
back, respectively, and some of the 
others were outstanding. Into trans- 
ferred to Yale and became one of the 
finest linesmen the Elis ever had and 
was selected for several ail-American 

Posey and Derrick are county agents 
and Axt lives just off the campus. 

Leech, of V. M. I., Great 

JIMMY LEECH, who scored V. M. L's 
** touchdown, was one of the country's 
greatest backs and still holds the rec- 
ord for the number of touchdowns gar- 
nered in one season — 26 in 1920. 

Leech, like Brewer and a lot of 
others in college in 1916-17, was out 
for a couple of years serving in the 
World War. He came back to be bet- 
ter than ever in 1919 and 1920.

It was in the V. M. I. game that 
Brewer made one of the most cele- 
brated punts on record. Standing be- 
hind his own goal line he booted the 
ball 95 yards from the line of scrim- 
mage, it going out of bounds on V. M. 
L's three-yard marker. On the next 
play Leech booted from behind his goal. 

Other members of the 1916 squad 
who did not get into the game against 
V. M. I. were Avy Williams, a great 
center; Andy Fletcher, a scintilating 
back; Stubbs, an outstanding end, all 
of whom were on the injured list; Bert 
Coggins, Leiter Aitcheson, Jimmy Ste- 
vens and McConnell. 

Reunion For 1912 

The class of 1912, under the leader- 
ship of Bob Tolson, President, is mak- 
ing plans for its twenty-fifth reunion. 
The first meeting of the committee in 
charge will be held Saturday, No-

ing. Plans cannot be started too 
soon. How about your class ?

Jim Meade, of Tome Institute, Port De-

land's greatest backs. He lugs 190 
pounds around like a sprinter, loves to 
play, and above all is a team player.

Heinie Miller, New Coach of Varsity 


oxing l earn. 

Team, Comes In For High Praise 

\PPOINTMENT of Mai. Harvey I.. 
( Heinie) Miller as boxing coach at 
Mai yland has met with compliments 

on all siilos. Here is what the Hds/i- 
iityton Star had to say about him: 

"Maryland's ring destiny has as- 
sumed a rosy hue with the appoint- 
ment of Miller, who. despite partici- 
pation in 806 boots, is unmarked by 
the usual cauliflower ears of veteran 
pugilists. Miller intends to eliminate 
the off-balance, wild swinging phase 
of collegiate righting and instruct the 
Terps in the style of boxing that car- 
ried him to several titles. 

"Thus, with Miller's appointment 
local collegiate clouting has been plac- 
ed on a new high plane, with Eddie La- 
fond. Catholic University coach and 
local referee, also well versed in sci- 
entific noggin-knocking. 

"Miller. secretary of the District Box- 
ing Commission, long has been iden- 
tified with boxing. As a tighter, he 
lost but six encounters while winning 
the bantamweight championship of the 
Army. Navy and Marine Corps and 
the professional featherweight and 
lightweight titles of the Far East. 

Keeps Up With dame 

"A referee for the past 30 years. 
Heinie has served as the third man 
in the ring for the Eastern Intercol- 
legiate Boxing Association and the 
Southern Conference since 1925. He

Maj. Harvey L. Miller 

writer and veteran of the World War. 
He also saw service ir. Cuba, the 
Philippines, China, Nicaragua and Mex- 
ico and at present is a major in the

"Succeeding Capt. John W. Har- 
mony. Old Line coach for four years. 
who was ordered to the Army school 
at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., Miller 
will be assisted by Lyman McAboy, 
former Maryland mittman, who tu- 
tored the freshman squad last year."

R. O. I. C. Boys Win Many Honors 

By .M.\. i. HOWARD Clark, 2nd 

117 HEN the Maryland boys returned 
" from the annual Bommer encamp- 
ment for Advanced R. (). T. ('. students 

Fori Washington, they brought with 

them the lion's share of the honors. 

Out of a total enrollment of 431 men 

from '22 universities, 49 men from 
Maryland won 24 prizes, or 35ft of 
the total number of awards for mili- 
tary and athletic attainments. 

g the regular army service rifle, 
four men of the unit qualified as ex- 
pert riflemen, 14 as sharpshooters and 
2 1 as marksmen, for a percentage of 
s7' 2 which was not only the record 
for the cam]), but also set a new rec- 
ord for rifle marksmans'.iip qualifica- 
tions in R. 0. T. C. camps for the Third 
Corps Area. The four expert riflemen 
who won the right to compete in the 
National Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio, 
were Raymond Davis, E. F. Mueller, 
Wilson C. Clark, and \V. G. Calder. 

On the pistol range, Maryland was 
surpassed only by Penn State, who 
have a pistol range on their campus 
for practice. Thirty-six Maryland men 
qualified for a percentage of 73.4. 
Onlv two Marvlanders had ever fired 

a ,45-calibre service pistol before go- 
ing to camp. 

Outstanding on the rifle and pistol 
range was Raymond Davis, who won 
the camp championship in both. With 
the rifle. Davis and Mueller were tied 
tor top honors which were decided in 
favor of the former on his 200 yards' 
Standing score, was one point higher 
than Mueller's record at that range. 

In addition to the above honors, the 
Champion Rifle Squad was composed 
of all Maryland nun — Mueller, Kelly, 
Dial, Berjrer, Sinsheimer, Scott, Cooke, 
and Webb. 

The outstanding individual honor 
was won by Harold L. Kelly of Silver 
Springs, who was named the camp 
Honor Student. Kelly, a senior this 
year, is a member of the boxing squad 
and colonel of the R. 0. T. C. regiment. 

Jumping over to the athletic awards, 
we find Maryland winning the volley 
ball tournament and horseshoe cham- 
pionship. Two men were placed on the 
camp baseball team; R. B. Graves won

Terrapin swimmers captured four first

Basket-ball and Ring Combinations 

will Start with Experienced Talent 

117HILE FOOTBALL is getting the 
" call now, Coach Burton Shipley 
of the basketers and Maj. Harvey 
Miller, the new boxing mentor, are 
thinking about the seasons in their 
respective sports. 

Boxing workouts will start in the 
near future and some basketball prac- 
tice will be held before the gridiron 
-on is over. 

Both sports have sufficient leftovers 
around which to build good teams. 
There are seven letter men left in 
basket-ball. However, Bernie Buschcr 
and Vic Willis, the two big scorers of 
the Terps, are lost. Buscher was 
graduated last .June and Willis, row 
shining on the grid, has played his 
allotted time on the court.

There is a letter man in nearly every 
class of the boxing squad with the 
heavyweight division offering the big- 
gest problem. 

Football To Be Broadcast 

Four of Maryland's football bat- 
tles will go on the air this fall over 
station WBAL in Baltimore. 

With Don Riley, prominent sports 
commentator, at the microphone, the 
following Terrapin games will go over 
the airlanes: November 14 — Virginia 
Military Institute; November 21 — 
irgetown, and December 5 — West- 
em Maryland. 

The broadcasts will come direct from 
the playing field as the game progress- 
es, and not merely he relayed tele- 
graph reports. 

John Patterson Bewley, '31, and Miss 
Cleore Wawona Day of Winslow, Ariz., 

were married September 18, 193G. 
Bewley is located in Arizona on soil 
erosion work for the U. S. D. A. 

Grads Seek Regular 
Army Commissions 

A year ago Representative Thoma- 
son instituted in Congress a bill, later 
to be known as the Thomason Act, 
which was beneficial to the Officers 
Reserve Corps of the U. S. Army. This 
Act provides for commissioning 1,000 
R. 0. T. C. graduates throughout the 
United States for a period of one year. 
At the end of the appointment, an un- 
determined number will be chosen for 
regular army commissions. 

The University of Maryland was no- 
tified that a quota of five would be 
chosen. As time went on the caliber 
of men graduating from Maryland so 
impressed the army personnel that six- 
teen men were finally chosen. 

Through the cooperation of Colonel 
Patch, we are able to give the names 
of those who have accepted the ap- 
pointments and their post assignments 
as follows: 

From the class of '36, John M. Fir- 
min, Brady J. Dayton, Ernest R. Ea- 
ton, W'illiam A. Hart, Francis D. 
Shoemaker, Joseph H. Morgan are sta- 
tioned at Fort Howard, Md. Arthur 
B. House, '33, is also at the same post. 

At Fort George G. Meade, we find 
Ray F. Chapman, '35; William R. Beall 
and Raymond F. Bartelmes, both of 
'36. Thaddeus R. Dulin, '35, and Tal- 
bert A. Smith, '33, are at Fort Wash- 
ington. John Simpson, '35, is at Fort 
Myer, Va. 


Washington Club 
:ns For '36-'37 


Call has been sounded by Douglass 
Wallop for all Terrapins in Washing- 
ton and vicinity to convene Wednesday, 
October 28, at 7:00 P. M., at the Pow- 
hatan Hotel, 18th Street and Pennsyl- 
vania Avenue. 

This is the inaugural meeting of the 
club for the ensuing year. Present 
plans call for a meeting on the first 
Wednesday in every month. The Pow- 
hatan has been chosen as the Alumni 
Headquarters for Washington and vi- 
cinity. A roster will be kept on hand 
at all times. Stop by and look up your 
class mates. 

Women's Dorm Needs Name 

Suggestions are now in order for 
a name for the new women's dormi- 
tory. One name recently suggested by 
Clifton E. Fuller, '96, of Cumberland, 
Md.. was Martha Washington, in honor 
of the wife of the first President of the 
United States. The University authori- 
ties are anxious to give it a name asso- 
ciated with colonial history, but are 
partial to a name prominent in colonial 
affairs in Maryland.

Constructive reminders of errors 

which appear in the Alumni News 
are always helpful and appreciated. 

Whether these errors be intentional or 
typographical they should not go un- 

In the October issue the editor's at- 
tention was called to a grammatical 
error "to who" which should have read 
"to whom." This was typographical. 
However, only one alumnus wrote the 
editor about it and he failed to sign 
his name; therefore, it is not possible 
to publicly give proper credit to the 
observing person. 

Five thousand copies of the News 
were circulated and only one, as far 
as I know, observed the error. Now 
what does this indicate? The class of 
1927 gets the credit for having an 
alumnus who reads the News from 
cover to cover and is further a good 

Gertrude Chesnut Resigns 

Miss Gertrude Chesnut, who has for 
nine years capably fulfilled her posi- 
tion at the University of Maryland in 
the Bureau of Information, has re- 
signed her position here to become 
Women's Editor of the New York Of- 
fice of Transradio Press Service. 

After a year, possibly, in which 
Gertrude will learn the ropes as a staff 
writer in the comparatively new field 
of radio news, a branch of the service 
may be established in Washington. 

Miss Chesnut is a member of the 
Alpha Omicron Pi sorority, and of the 
clubs in the College of Home Econom- 
ics. She also was a member of the 
Women's Athletic Association and the 
Y. W. C. A. Her assistance has been 
■t.imably valuable to the Alumni 

Her departure, which happens to be 
the day after Homecoming, brought 
a great loss to this University. On 
behalf of the Alumni Association, the 

News extends to her the best wi 

for all possible success. 


H. M. Davis/74, Oldest Graduate, Dies 

Horace Rlosell Davis, 85-year-old re- 
tired Montgomery County school teach- 
er and oldest living graduate of the 

University of Maryland, died at the 
home of his daughter, Airs. Marshall 
Hersperger, October '.», l '.•:><;. 

A native of Frederick County, Davis 
attended the university when it was 
known as Maryland Agricultural Col- 
lege and graduated in 1874. He taught 
in Montgomery County schools for a 
time and then returned to college to 
receive his M. A. degree in 1877. 

He went to California shortly after 
obtaining his degree and taught for 
six years, returning to Montgomery 
County in 1884 to take up farming 
and to teach at Poolesville School, a 
position he held for 26 years. He 
also served as a vestryman at St. 
Peter's Episcopal Church. 

In addition to his daughter, Mrs. 
Hersperger, he is survived by one son, 
Frank I. Davis, former clerk of the 
Montgomery County Police Court and 
now an employee in the county treas- 

urer's office, and two great-grand 


Extension Service Has Active Season 

-■- University, under the leadership 
and direction of Dr. Thomas B. Sy- 
mons, '02, has been especially active 
during the summer months. During the 
month of June more than 700 women 
from every county in the State attend- 
ed the fourteenth annual Rural Wom- 
en's Short Course. One of the high- 
lights of this event was an address by 
U. S. Senator Millard E. Tydings, '10. 
In August the Extension Service as- 
sisted in entertaining a large delega- 
tion of grange leaders from the States 
of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, 
New Jersey and New York upon the 
occasion of the tenth annual meeting 
of the Middle Atlantic Grange Lec- 
turers' Association. More than 400 
grangers attended the meeting, 50 of 

whom were from Maryland. Albert 
A. Ady, '26, assistant county agent for 
Montgomery County and lecturer for 
the Maryland State Grange, took a 
most active part in making the visit- 
ing grangers feel at home in Maryland. 
Immediately preceding the Grange 
conference the campus was the scene 
of much activity when nearly 500 4-H 
Club boys and girl: from all sections 
of the State held their eighteenth an- 
nual Club Week at the University un- 
der the auspices of the Extension Serv- 
ice. Here again Mr. Ady took an ac- 
tive part as well as the following 
other Maryland alumni: Warren My- 
ers, '30; Mylo Downey, '27; Wheeler 
Ensor, '33; Harry Myers, '28; Charles 
Remsburg, '26, Isabel Bewick, '30, and 
Elizabeth Johnson, '35. 

Stanford, '99, Dies 

At the age of 54, death took the life 
Of Harry R. Stanford, '99, during the 

iimmer. His death was due to 
complications from pneumonia. He 
..a- horn in Boston, but has been a 

nt of Washington. D. ('., since 

II. graduated from the University in 

and was a sponsor of the class 
medal to the student winning the an- 

nual individual competitive drill. At 
the time of his death, he was president 
and owner of the Stanford Paper Co. 
He was buried at Leesburg, Va. 

IJ V good education is generally con- 
sidered as reflecting no small credit on 
its possessor; but in the majority of 
eases it reflects credit on the wise so- 
licitude of his parents or guardians, 
rather than on himself. 

Student Parachute Artist 
Amazes Homecoming Crowd 

One undergraduate probably drew 
more attention than did any of the 
9,000 returning alumni at the Home- 
coming game. 

All eyes were turned upward at half 
time as Kim Scribner, freshman engi- 
neer, prepared to make his entrance to 
the game. At an altitude of 8,000 feet 
the Old Line birdman bailed out of the 
Mt. Vernon Airways new Stinson Re- 
lant while the throng below watched. 

Intending to land upon or near the 
playing field Kim did not reckon w r ith 
the stiff wind which swept from the 

The wind carried him beyond the 
Stadium and behind the Rossbourg Inn 
where the silk caught the telephone 
wires and roughly dumped him about 
20 feet to the ground. 

Doctor Cole Dies 

Dr. G. R. Lee Cole, '87, M. D., died 
at his home in Washington, D. C. He 
was 72 years old. For 50 years he 
has been a practicing physician in 
Washington, and leaves a most envia- 
ble record. 

During his entire life as a doctor, 
he was active in many medical soci- 
eties. He kept his medical interest 
alive by teaching in the National Col- 
lege of Medicine, now a part of George 
Washington University. 

He served as a surgeon in the Dis- 
trict National Guard during the Span- 
ish American War. At the time of his 
death, he was actively practicing medi-

NOVEMBER, !!>;<; 




MARYLAND'S fourteenth annual 
*■"*■ Homecoming on November L4 

the most colorful ever held in 
Byrd Stadium since its dedication in 
1923 to H. a "Curley" Byrd, '08, now 

ient of his Alma Mater. The 
"Old Line" holiday spirit was entered 
into wholeheartedly by alumni and 
students. The cooperation of the many 
student organisations extended old 
grads a most enthusiastic welcome. 
Every function daring the day was well 
attended, and every sorority and fra- 
ternity had a packed house. 

Alumni began to arrive as early as 
Friday afternoon to make it a real 
week-end. Early Satur- 
day morning the old 
grads assembled at the 
Ritchie Coliseum to 
swap greetings and 
yarns. As fast as regis- 
trations were recorded, 
the names were posted 
on a blackboard to make 
it easier for the alumni 
to see who was on hand. 
This feature proved quite 
helpful in getting old ac- 
quaintances together. 
The returning throng: 
ied by J. B. Gray. 
75, oldest living alum- 
nus, and the father of 
two sons who are grad- 
uates. Other promi- 
nent and notable alum- 
ni among the returning 
old grads were Senator 
Millard E. Tydings, '10; 
Hon. W. P. Cole, '10, U. 
S. Congressman; Dr. 
W.W. Skinner, '95, Hon. 
Henry Holzapfel, Jr., 
'93, member of the Board of Regents; 
F. H. Dryden, '09, State Administra- 
tor of the Social Security Adminis- 

The loss of the football game to the 
Flying Squadron of V. M. I. only par- 
tially marred the spirit of the day. 
The game contained many thrilling 
plays and the crowd was held breath- 
mtil the final whistle. Mary- 
land's 7 point lead was not matched 
un::l the final period when the Kaydets 
went on the fly to score. A penalty 
on Maryland was the break which the 
Kaydets promptly took advantage to 
put across the winning score. With but 
a few minutes to go the Terps started 
a drive which only time stopped. 

During half-time, one of the day's 
outstanding colorful events was pre- 
sented. A float parade of various de- 

signs was participated in by Frater- 
nities, sororities and oilier student or 

ganizations. The arraj of artistic, his- 
toric and comic floats was led by Mary- 
land's famous band. Prizes were award- 
ed to Alpha Tau Omega for the most 
comic. A. 0. I'i won the artistic award, 
and the Day Dodgers, the historic. 

Immediately after the game the an- 
nual "M" Club meeting was held in 
the environs of the Trophy Room of 
the Ritchie Coliseum. Lewis YV. Thom- 
as. "28, president, was re-elected unan- 
imously for his second term. 

The enjoyable gathering of the day 
for old grads was the Alumni Mixer

alumni, faculty, and friends of the 
University attended this popular af- 

Crowning the colorful events of the 
day was the Homecoming Dance, held 
for the first time in the Ritchie Col- 
iseum. Dan Gregory's popular orches- 
tra from Harrisburg provided rhythm 
and entertainment for the dance. Three 
prizes, spot dances, and a Paul Jones 
added a greal deal to the spirit of the 
occasion. Mi-- Edith Remson, lady 
friend of Henry G. Knoche, was award- 
ed the prize for the Alumni Dance. 
The prize for the football dance was

and dancing partner o( "BUI" Bryant,

"M" Club Re-elects 

Thomas, '28, President 

IN the environs of the trophya of the 
*-past, Lewis W. "Knocky" Thomas, 
former Btar of the gridiron and 
cinder path was re-elected presidenl 
of the "M" Club. A very good repre- 
Bentation of the club's membership 
was present for the fourteenth annual 
business session. Dr. K. N. Cory, '09, 
was re-elected secretary. 

President Thomas gave the club a 
resume of activities during the past 
year, and outlined some interesting 
proposal- for the ensuing year. Out- 
standing, was the plan for soliciting 
life membership in the club. 

Professor Geary Eppley, '18, direc- 
tor of athletics, was called on to give 
the Club a talk on the athletic achieve- 
ment and proposed policies of the Uni- 
versity, which he did in a very compre- 
hensive way. 

The meeting adjourned at 6 P. M. to 
attend the Alumni Mixer and Buffet 
Supper which was being held in the 
Girls' Field House. This was followed 
by the annual Homecoming Dance, 
sponsored by the "M" Club. The dance 
brought to a close the greatest Home- 
coming the University has had in many

Washington Alumni 

Hold Get-together 

Frank Dobson, head coach of foot- 
ball was the principal speaker at a 
rally held by the Washington Alumni 

Club, early in November at the Hamil- 
ton Hotel in Washington. Many of tin' 
old boys were on band for a general 

together, and gabfest on the cur- 
rent Football. 

Pn ident Douglas Wallop, Jr., 'lit. 

ided. The get-together started otf 

with a buffet BUpper with a good sup- 
ply of I the beverage. Dinty 

Coons, 'l".». secretary, and Charley 

Bishop, '•':<>. were the able assistants. 

The old round robbin discussion was 
aided by .Jack Faber, '30, all active 
with the football squad. Geary Epply, 
'18, director of athletics, gave some in- 
side information as to how Alumni can 
help in having good athletics at Mary- 

Plans were discussed when another 
such affair would be held during the 
basket-ball and boxing season, which is 
the next attractive program. Do not 
miss these functions. Keep in contact 
with fellow Alumni by attending these 
informal gatherings. 

Where Were You ? 

Fellow Alumni: 

Everything about Homecoming last 
Saturday was so enjoyable with the 
possible exception of the football 
score, that I can not miss this oppor- 
tunity to tell those who were not there 
what they missed. From the time 
you arrived on the campus until you 
left, there was a real holiday spirit 
among students and Alumni. 

More old Grads were on hand than I 
have ever seen at College Pai'k,and I for 
one certainly did enjoy seeing many 
old faces, and getting acquainted with 
new ones. 

The program for the day was well 
arranged and Lewis W. (Knocky) 
Thomas, '28, president of the "M" 
Club and myself had the best coopera- 
tion possible from our alumni on the 

I was personally impressed by the 
splendid spirit exhibited by the student 
body. It is something that makes the 
old back-bone tingle with thoughts of 
our own undergrad day. I was actu- 
ally 10 years younger that day. 

Those of you who were not there 
were missed by many and missed 
yourself a most enjoyable time. I 
warn you, do not let it happen again. 
See you next month. 

Sincerely yours, 
Frank Hines, '00, 
President, Alumni Association.

Baltimore "M" Men 
Hold Rally 

The Baltimore Chapter of the "M" 
Club held a pre-Homecoming rally at 
Collins Restaurant in Baltimore. No 
speeches, but a round table discussion 
about past and present football high- 

Arthur Shanklin, '90, and Dr. Arthur 
Hebb, '91, two old timers marveled at 
the great changes in football since 
their days. There was a great deal 
of interest in the moving picture of the 
Maryland-Florida game which was 

Lewis W. "Knocky" Thomas, '28, at- 
tended the meeting and gave a short 
talk on the proposed Homecoming pro- 
gram. He urged the group to have 
more gatherings which will endeavor 
to kindle more spirit in the University 

Flying A. T. O's. 

Bill "Country" Moore, '26, started a 
tradition in the Maryland chapter of 
Alpha Tau Omega which was main- 
tained for five years, when he entered 
the Air Corps Training School at Kelly 
Field, San Antonio, Texas. 

Bill was the first of the A. T. O's. to 
survive the "toughest training" in the 
world; government statistics show that 
only forty-six per cent of these enter- 
ing the flying school ever graduate. 

Ed "Budnitz" Wheeler, '22, and Chal- 
mers "Han'some" Hughes, '22, were the 
next two to go to Texas and upheld the 
tradition by graduating with honors. 
Joe Caldara, '31, followed by Bob Al- 
len, '32, and George Hargis, '31, en- 
tered the Air Corps Training Center, 
a combination of Randolph and Kelly 
Fields which made the school the most 
outstanding military flying instruction 
institution in the world. 

Since Hargis finished no more of the 
A. T. O. men have gone into flying and 
most of those who followed the profes- 
sion have abandoned it. Bill Moore is 
the only one flying for a profession; 
Hughes is in the Department of Com- 
merce; Ed Wheeler is a lumber man in 
Bel Air; Bob Allen is a safety engineer 
in New York. George Hargis is proj- 
ect engineer for the City of Frederick 
and Joe Caldara is a sales supervisor 
for the B. F. Goodrich Company in 
Washington, D. C. 

This is the pride of A. T. O.: that 
none of its members who entered the 
Hying school ever "washed out."

Forces Leading To The Establishment of 
Maryland Agricultural College 

By George Fogg. '26. 

■^ in a recent master's thesis, lias 
brought together an enormous amount 
of material relating to the events and 
people who finally established the Mary- 
land Agricultural College. Now the 
College Park Schools of the University. 

He shows how the foundation of the 

school traces directly from the reckless 

agricultural practices of the early col- 
onists, who. with almost limitless areas 
of land available, saw no reason to 
husband the productive capacities of 
the soil. But soon the land was all 
taken up, and the State suffered a 
period of severe agricultural depres- 
sion. For relief, the agricultural lead- 
ers of the eighteenth and nineteenth 
centuries turned to means of dissemi- 
nating the more highly developed prin- 
ciples of European agriculture. 

One of the first means to this end, 
was the establishment of many agri- 
cultural societies and periodicals. One 
of the most important of the latter 
was the American Farmer, founded by 
John S. Skinner. 

The next proposition was for the 
establishment of numerous agricultur- 
al schools and pattern farms. One of 
the leaders in this movement was Lit- 

tleton D, Teackle, who succeeded only 
partially in his project. For, though he 

was instrumental in reorganizing the 

State school program, and was made 
superintendent of public instruction, 
he was not authorized to inaugurate 
any program of agricultural education. 
In is:;:; the legislature authorized 

the construction of a geological map 
and survey of tin- State for the pur- 
pose of correctly estimating its agri- 
cultural resources. 

Along this line, the State, in 1848, 
iblished the office of agricultural 
chemist, and appointed Mr. James 
Higgins of Anne Arundel County to 
the post. For the sum of $1,500 per 
year this gentleman was expected "to 
analyze specimens of each variety of 
soil, marl or other mineral of vegetable 
deposit; to deliver one public lecture 
in each election district and a course 
of public lectures at each county town 
and some central place in Baltimore 
County, and permit the clerk of the 
levy court or tax commissioner to take 
a copy of his lectures for publication 
and preservation." 

In the meantime numerous agricul- 
tural societies and farmers clubs had 
been educating the public mind to the 

necessity for training in efflcienl agri- 
culture if the State was t<> avoid fui 

ther loss. Although this general mow 

ment began before 1800, tin- first date 
of great importance to us is Septem 

ber •"'. IMS. when Charles B. Calvert 

called to order the Maryland State 
Agricultural Convention in Baltimore. 

Out of this meeting grew the Mary- 
land State Agricultural Society, which, 
among other things, petitioned the 
State and Federal Governments for the 
establishment of an agricultural col- 
lege and experimental farm. 

Failing in both directions, the soci- 
ety passed several caustically censur- 
ing resolutions and set about seeking 
independent means for the establish- 
ment of such a school. 

Among the numerous proposals 
brought forward to this end was the 
plan to purchase Mount Vernon, then 
in rather bad condition. Finally, how- 
ever, the society decided to seek a 
Maryland charter for the establish- 
ment of such a school by private sub- 
scription under its own general con- 
trol, Governor Ligon recommended in 
his message of January 2, 1856, that 
"something be done . . . for the pro- 
motion of our agricultural education." 
Backed by the American Farmer and 
the Maryland State Agricultural Soci- 
ety, Colonel Sothoron, on January 15, 
1856, introduced into the Senate the 
bill which eventually established the 
Maryland Agricultural College. It be- 
came a law on March 6, 1856.

Thrills Students 

By Chris Kempto.v 

A vibrant, tall, white-haired mu- 
sician stepped out on the University 
stage; said a few words; and held an 
eager audience in the palm of his hand. 

The man was Geoffrey O'Hara, na- 
tionally known composer of such songs 
as "K-K-K-Katy." and "Give a Man a 
Horse He Can Ride." Mr. O'Hara 
spoke on the subject, "Everyone a 
Composer," illustrating cleverly on the 

Geoffrey O'Hara was brought here 
by Maryland's active music director, 
Harlan Randall. The program con- 
'>{ Mr. O'Hara's songs and ar- 
rangements, sung by the Men's Glee 
Club; Women's Chorus; the mixed 
chorus; Mr. and Mrs. Randall; and 
the Washington Mixed Quartet.

Of Grid Team Feel Strain 

And Drop Games On Foes' Late Scores 

.Maryland, with shortage of line re- 
serves, has felt the strain of its long 
schedule and after winning four of 
the first live has had to take some de- 
feats in close games in which it could 
not "last" after getting out in front. 

Florida was the first case at Gaines- 
ville, on October 31, when the 'Gators 
got a late score to win, 7 to 6, in a 
game in which the Terps gained more 
than double the ground of the winners. 
Injuries also hampered the Terps in 
this game. 

A tired team got by Richmond, 12 to 
0, but then ran afoul of V. M. I. on 
Homecoming Day, November 14, and 
after getting an easy early touchdown 
and leading 7 to into the fourth quar- 
ter, finally lost out, 13 to 7. 

A same kind of a fate befell the 
Terps on November 21 when they 
gave way to Georgetown, 7 to 6, when 
the latter blocked a kick in the last 
period for its touchdown. Maryland 
got its score in the second quarter and 
missed another when a touchdown pass 
was dropped in the end zone. 

Of course, dropping a pass merely 
is a mechanical error that should not 
be criticized, probably not even men- 
tioned, as is the fact that ties could 
have been gained with Florida and 
Georgetown had the extra point not 
been missed. Maryland has had 15 
"iron men" do nearly all its playing 
and the burden has been too much. 

However, the fact remains that the 
Terps' attack has not been as con- 
sistently effective as it was in past 
years, despite the pi'esence of the 
great Bill Guckeyson and other such 
unusually fine backs as Coleman Head- 
ley, Jim Meade, Charlie Ellinger, John 
Gormley and Edmond Daly. 

Results of the past games:

Basket-ball Season Gets Early Start- 
Two Games Slated Before Christmas 

While football was still in progress, 
Maryland was getting ready to open 
its basket-ball schedule, games being 
slated before Christmas with Richmond 
at Richmond on December 17 and Uni- 
versity of Baltimore at College Park 
the next night. 

Only three of the seven 1935-36 let- 
ter men are working out at present. 
Fred Thomas and Charlie Keller, 
guards, and Al Waters, forward, as 
Bill Bryant, Waverly Wheeler and John 
McCarthy are with the Varsity grid 
squad and it is not expected that Ben 
Allen, from the Pharmacy School in 
Baltimore, will play this season. It is 
difficult for him to get away to practice 
enough to fit into the team, although 
he is a highly capable performer. 

Coach Burton Shipley expects to 
have Hill Guckeyson and possibly Cole- 
man Headley for his basket-ball com- 
bination. Guckeyson, who won his let- 
ter in his sophomore year, plans to 
play, and Headley, a really fine court 
guard, hopes to unless he is prevented 
from doing so by indoor track. 

In addition to the letter men who 
ted early toil, a number of last 

year's frosh are getting in their licks. 
Leaders among the rookies are George 
Knepley, an exceptional performer; 
Eddie Johnson, son of the great pitch- 
er, and Bob Neilson and Milton Mul- 

When "Ship" gets his full array, he 
should be able to build another one of 
his able machines but the quintet is 
facing a handicap in playing Richmond 
and Baltimore so soon after the foot- 
ball campaign ends. 

Here is the complete schedule with 
last year's scores in parenthesis: 

December 17 — Richmond U., Richmond, 
Va. (28-24). 

December 18 — Baltimore U., College 
Park (55-33). 

January 6 — Johns Hopkins, College 
Park (45-40). 

January 8 — Washington and Lee, Lex- 
ington, Va., (27-30). 

January 9 — V. M. I., Lexington, Va. 

January 14 — Western Maryland, Col- 
lege Park. 

January 16— Duke, College Park (38- 

.January 20 — Washington College, Col- 
lege Park (")(;-.•{()). 

Januarv 23 — Virginia, College Park 

Seven 1937 Grid 
Games At "Home" 

Maryland's 1937 football schedule, 
which was announced just after the 
close of the 1935 campaign, will find 
the Terps doing little traveling as com- 
pared to 1936. 

In fact, seven of the ten 1937 con- 
tests will be played at spots that may 
be called "home" gridirons. Just three 
actually will be played at College Park, 
but three others will be in the Balti- 
more Stadium and the tilt with 
Georgetown will be at Griffith Stadium 
in Washington. 

Virginia, which was originally sched- 
uled to visit College Park this year, 
"swapped" games with Maryland and 
consequently the 1937 tilt with the Cav- 
aliers, which was first announced for 
Charlottesville, will be played at Col- 
lege Park. 

Maryland's only trips next year will 
be to play V. M. I., Penn and Penn 
State, both of the latter being on the 
Maryland slate for the first time in 
recent years. 

Here is the attractive 1937 card: 

September 25 — St. John's, College 

October 2 — Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. 

October 9 — Western Maryland, Balti- 
more Stadium. 

October 16 — Virginia, College Park. 

October 23 — Syracuse, Baltimore Sta- 

October 30— Florida, College Park. 

November 6 — V. M. I., Lexington, Va.

Frosh Team Good-Cleverly Handled B ° xer * <»*> Redd * 

» .Mni Ilcmii' Mi it lii'.'ii en 

Maryland had the best freshman 
beam in iva'iu yean and the young 

Terpa completed their schedule on No- 
vember 21 with four wins and one tie. 

Here is the record of the yearlings, 
all games being with freshman teams 
of other universities: 

Maryland, 6; Virginia. B, 

Maryland, 12; Richmond I'.. 6. 

Maryland, 21; Georgetown, 0. 

Maryland, 6; Washington and 1 

Maryland. 13; V. M. I.. 7. 

it 40 aspirants remained out 
through the entire season and while 
the talent was above the average for 
Maryland) it was tine coaching and 
clever organization work by Al Woods. 
former Old Line star, that made the 
team so effective. It was a scrappy. 
well-trained, sportsmanlike bunch. 

Here is the way that the team start- 
ed its final game against V, M. I., 
which it pulled out of the fire by scor- 
ing two touchdowns in the last quarter: 

Francis Beamer. left end; Robert 
Brown, left tackle; Tom Finlayson, 
left guard; John Boyda, center; George 
Lawrence, right guard; Ralph Alba- 
rino, right tackle; Paul Whedon, right 
end; Johnny Carliss, quarter; Adam 

Bengoechea, left half; Pershing Mon- 

dorff, right half; Bill Sanders, fullback. 

Johnny Jones, an outstanding back 

and regular, was kept out of the last 

three game by injuries. 

A number o( the others offer prom- 
ising Varsity material, but need more 
time for development. 

A I. WOODS. '33 

Tcrps Jam In Bis Meet 

Maryland, along with the Fifth Reg- 
iment, will sponsor a big indoor meet 
in the latter's large and beautiful 
armory in Baltimore on March 6. 

It is expected to give main consid- 
eration to the high, prep and college 
athletes of this section and the South- 
ern Conference and to have representa- 
tion from the North also. 

It has been a long time since a big 
meet has been staged in these parts 
and the affair should be well received. 

An indoor meet is a need hereabouts, 
but is something that takes a lot of 
toil with little chance of breaking even 


C Jack Hauerty. Georgetown Univer- 
coach, is the latest to cast his bal- 
lot for Bill Guckeyson, University 
of Maryland ace, as his No. 1 all- 
America backfield choice. 

Hagerty, who starred as a ball 
toter for Georgetown in 1924, 1 
and 1026, and who played pro football 
for quite a spell before returning to 
his Alma Mater as head mentor, had 
this to say about the Terrapin flash: 

"Guckeyson is the best back I ever 
have seen in college football and I've 

seen quite a few. You think he's just 
a runner and kicker, do you? Let 
me tell you something. He's got a 
great head on his football shoulders 
and he'll not only outrun any back I've 
seen, but he'll also outthink him. That's 
why he's the best." 

Draws Record Crowd 

Maryland had a record crowd of 
13,000 at College Park on November 
21 for its game with Georgetown. In 
addition to the regular stands, there 
were boxes along both sides of the 
field and bleachers were erected at 
both the north and south ends of Byrd 
Stadium. Every ticket was sold. 

More than 8,000 also were on hand 
for the Homecoming game with V. M. 
I., on November 14. A parade of 
floats, fine cheering and other features 
marked this contest. 

Frank DeArmey and Jim Forrester, 
reserve centers are the only two Uni- 
versity of Maryland gridmen who do 
not take part in another varsity sport. 
Many figure in three pastimes and Bill 
Guckeyson has letters in football, bas- 
ket-ball, track and baseball. 

Maj. Hcinie Miller, head COach, and 

Lyman McAboy, his assistant, are busy 

with the boxers with the outlook for 
another good Terp team. Right B.0U 
tin' weeding-out process is going on 

and more definite news on the mitt- 
men will he available for the next is- 

The Terps do not open their season 
until January 9, when Western Mary- 
land will be met. 

Meets, with last year's scores, if 
they met, are: 

January 9 — Western Maryland, Col- 
lege Park. 
""January 16 — Richmond U., College 

"■January 23 — North Carolina, College 

Park (5%-2%). 
January 30 — V. M. I., Lexington, Va. 

February 6 — Virginia, Charlottesville 
(3y 2 -4V-). 
""February 13 — Rutgers, College Park 
"■February 20— Catholic U., College 
Park (3%-4%). 
February 27 — Southern Conference 

•Double-header with Varsity basket-ball. 

Another Clever Carliss 

Johnny Carliss, ace back of the 
freshman football team this year, is 
a brother of Ernie who played for the 
Terps in 1928, '29 and '30, and who was 
an all-State tackle. Johnny, of course, 
is from Windber, Pa., where Ernie 
came from. "Snitz" Snyder, also an- 
other Windber product who was a 
Maryland star several years back, 
cheered Johnny on as the Terp year- 
lings beat V. M. I. on November 21. 

Soccermen Triumph 
Over Johns Hopkins 

A whirlwind last four-minute attack 
in which they scored three goals gave 
Maryland's soccermen a 3-0 victory 
over Hopkins booters in the opening 
athletic feature of Homecoming day. 

CI When the Terp footballers invaded 
Syracuse University this fall and won 
20 to many Old Liners were on hand. 
Among those known to be present were 
Dr. John F. Moore, '23, now resident 
doctor at the U. S. Veterans Hospital, 
Bath, N. Y., J. Frank Barton, '24, of 
the Federal Portland Cement Company 
ol Buffalo, George Hockensmith, '33, 
of the Hockensmith Contracting Com- 
pany of Buffalo.

Fellow Alumni : 

As we begin the New Year, let us 
live the spirit of our Alma Mater. 

recognizing our individual reponsibil- 

ity for the achievements of its aims 
and its objects. By BO doing, the Al- 
umni Association will lie taking an in- 
tegral part in the accomplishments of 
our University. 

In my humble opinion, one of the 
strongest factors of our association 
is that it is, almost in its entirety, a 
voluntary organization. We have our 
class connections; we have our group 
affiliations and we have our Univer- 
sity, the service station, all to be main- 
tained and carried on for the service 
of youth. Even though we are a 
State institution and concentrated with- 
in the borders of our own State, we 
have many alumni scattered over the 
face of the earth, all giving some 
thought to the University and how it 
can benefit the communities of the 

Your officers and Alumni Board are 
doing everything possible to advance 
the Association throughout the coming 
year; all they need is your support. 

With best wishes for the New Year, 
I am, Sincerely yours, 

Frank Hines.'OO, President. 

Dental Honors 

Dr. Guy 0. Lyons, I). D. S., '15, has 
sent his daughter Elnora to the Col- 
lege of Home Economics and a son, 
Eugene D., to the Dental School. In 
this instance, as father goes so does 
his son, as Eugene was president of the 
Sophomore class last year and dad 
was the president of his class. Eugene 
brings home more honors to the family 
by attaining the highest mark in the 
National Board of Examiners for 
Sophomore Dental students and furth- 
er passed the Maryland State Board 
with high honors. Not only is this a 
good reflection of the Integrity of the 
Lyons' family, but also on the instrUC 
tion at the University Dental School.

Quirk Sisters Attend 
Summer School At Munich 

By Anna M UUE, Bl n 
Daring the past summer it was 
our good fortune, accompanied by our 
mother) to tour Prance, Belgium and 
Germany and attend summer-school 
at the University of Munich. Our 
itinerary carried us first to Paris, 
which seems to be perfection in the 
minds of many travelers, especially 
ladies. The Parisians are a people 
of nerve, energy, wit. and keenness 
which makes Paris an influential city. 
It was. however, the talk of many 
travelers that tourists were not ac- 
corded the same hospitable treatment 
as in the other countries, especially 

Buys Wedding Veil 
From Paris we jumped to that offi- 
cial and important center — Brussels, 
a city built by kings. It is a city of 
great interest, with its collection of 
precious things of gold and treasures 
of art. The many shops and cafes 
line the streets and in some instances 
extend half-way across the street. 
"Here." says Eleanor. "Anna Marie 
(now Mrs. Warren Ty dings) bought 
her wedding veil." From Brussels we 
journeyed on to Cologne, the perfume 
town and the most noted city on the 
banks of the Rhine. Then came Heidel- 
berg, the site of the oldest and most 
celebrated University of Germany. It 
is old and not particularly impressive, 
but in its library is the best collection 
in the world of ancient documents. 
Following a couple more stops we ar- 
rived at that world-renowned, friendly, 
and good-natured city of Munich. But 
who wouldn't be good-natured and hap- 
py if located in that glorious Bavar- 
ian mountain climate? Here we en- 
tered the Summer School of the Uni- 
versity of Munich, which is quite differ- 
ent from the Summer School of the 
University of Maryland. 

Begin Classes 
At Munich there were only 125 stu- 
dents enrolled, but this group repre- 
sented dozens of nationalities, and as 
many mother tongues being spok- 
en. German, however, was the com- 
mon language, and even the three of us 
who were the "baby" beginners da 
soon found is possible to be understood, 
and we went native along with the 
Hungarians, the Lithuanians, and the 
Finns. And everyone docs go native 
there. All the boys wore the Bavar- 
ian costume of leather shorts and Ty- 
rolean hats, while the girls wore the 

v and Ki EANOB Ql ikk 
peasant "dirndl" dress. Of course, 
we all had bicycles, which is the con- 
ventional method of travel. 

The University plans for almost 
every minute of your time during the 
Course. Classes finished at noon, after 
which there were sight-seeing trips, 
lectures by well-known men, or "sings" 
wlure we all gathered to sing native 
folk songs. But the week-ends were 
the best. Each Friday night we had 
a dance, and soon we were adept at 
everything from the Viennese Waltz 
to the Polish Schottische. Then the 
next morning the entire enrollment of 
1l'."> would pile into trains or busses 
for excursions to the Bavarian Alps. 
You have never been cold in your 
life until you have been swimming in 
an alpine lake fed by a glacial stream. 
And you have never been tired until 
you have tried to climb an Alpine 
mountain with a tireless German, who 
was brought up climbing Alps, as your 

Beer Is Good 

But the word "student" is a magic 
word there. From the first day when 
we were greeted by the mayor and 
handed the keys of the city, Munich 
took us in. It is a lovely city with a 
small-town atmosphere, and even if you 
don't like beer you will learn to like 
Munich beer. It is undisputedly the 
best in the w r orld. And it cannot make 
you fat because you work too hard 
pedalling your bicycle around. 

Munich left its mark on us, but the 
Quirks have left theirs' on Munich 
too, I'm afraid. We corrupted the 
very, very correct Oxford English of 
all the little German boys with our 
worst and most expressive American 

Through Germany 

Following summer school, we con- 
tinued on, stopping at Luzen and In- 
terlaken, Switzerland; Innsbruck and 
Salzburg, Austria; Brechtisgarden, 
Dresden, Berlin, and Hamburg, Ger- 
many. Of these, Dresden, the location 
of the famous Dresden Picture Gal- 
lery, a collection of which ranks fore- 
il in the world, was probably the 
■ .rm. Hamburg, onr point 
of embarkation, is one of Germany's 
oldest cities but looks very modern. 
In fact, much to our surprise, mod- 
ern architecture was quite noticeable 
throughout our trip. 

Much of the unrest which we have 

Dean Rowland Honored 

On December is, Dr. .1. .M. II. Row 
land, dean of the Medical School, the 

oldest department of the University, 
was honored by associates and Alum- 
ni. The day was designated as Row- 
land Day, and a titling program pn 
sented. In the morning Dr. Arthur 
M. Shipley, professor of surgery, pre- 
sided at ceremonies held in tin Pea 
body Institute at which time a por 
trait in oil of Dr. Rowland was pre- 
sented to the University. Dr. Charles 
Bagley, Jr., '04, Professor of Surgery, 
made the presentation address and the 
portrait was accepted in behalf of the 
University by Dr. H. C. Byrd, presi- 

A dinner was tendered Dr. Row- 
land that evening at the Belvedere 
Hotel with Dr. Walter D. Wise, '06, 
professor of surgery as toastmaster. 
Laudatory speeches on Dr. Rowland 
were given, as: "The Dean," by Dr. 
Alan M. Chesney, "The Physician," 
by Dr. Maurice C. Pincoffs, '12, "The 
Citizen," by Hon. Samuel K. Dennis, 
'03, Chief Judge of the Baltimore Su- 
preme Bench, "The Man," by Dr. 
Charles Reid Edwards, '13. 

Dr. Rowland was graduated from 
the Baltimore Medical College in 1890, 
and was appointed as teacher in that 
College in 1892. He came to the Uni- 
versity of Maryland in 1913 as Profes- 
sor of Obstetrics and was made Dean 
of Obstetrics in 1916. He has devoted 
nearly fifty years of his life to the 
teaching of medicine and has for thir- 
ty-six years been a specialist in ob-

Dame Fortune Shuns Varsity Gridmen 
But Season Has Some Pleasing Angles 

Maryland had a 50-50 Football season 

as far as major wins and losses were 

concerned, although its record stands 

with six games on the right side of the 
ledger and five on the wrong. 

A clever St. John's of Annapolis elev- 
en was beaten in the opener and then 
the team went on to get an even break 
in its series of 10 major contests in as 
many weeks. It was a tremendous task 
for a small squad, but the gridders 
kept up a good spirit and stuck to 
their jams to the finish. This took care- 
ful handling from the standpoint of 
condition and morale and the coaches 
deserve credit for their work in these 

It was a season — they occur now and 
then — in which the Terps just weren't 
on Dame Fortune's list. Had luck been 
prone to smile upon Maryland, the 
team might easily have won three or 
four more games and all that was 
needed in two that went the wrong way 
was the point after touchdown in each 
to have brought about ties. 

In only the V. M. I. game did the 
Terps really play "sad" football. They 
started out "like a house afire" in that 
tilt but after getting a score, went in- 
to "seclusion" and permitted the alum- 
ni, back in large numbers for Home- 
coming, to see them at their worst for 
the season. Six games away from home 
preceded the contest with the Cadets 
and that may easily be part of the an- 
swer to their bogging down that day. 

In looking over the statistics, the 
fact is brought out that Maryland was 
outgained in only one contest, that 
with North Carolina in which the Tar- 
heels scored a clean cut triumph. Vic- 
tory could have been achieved very 
easily in the other tilts lost. It is a diffi- 
cult thing to recount the season without 
being accused of offering alibis in view 
of the fact that the assets for a better 

COrd were in the squad, so we will 
go no farther in discussing the pros 
and cons of victories and defeats. 

Maryland's leading triumph <>f the 

"..■I b 20 to victory over Syra- 

in the Salt City. The Terps v 

"hot" ui! both attack ami defense that 

day and played a game that would have 

n any of its foes. 

Maryland had probably the smallest 
squad in "big league" football in the 
country but it had the ablest set of 
backs it ever has boasted and an array 
it may never again gather on the same 

Led by Bill Guckeyson and including 
Coleman Headley, Charlie Ellinger, 
John Gormley, Jim Meade, Ed Daly, 
Charlie Weidinger, Waverly Wheeler 
and others of latent ability, the talent 
for a powerful, versatile and puzzling- 
attack was presented. At times the of- 
fense was strong and flashy but it failed 
to show the smoothness, consistency 
and scoring prowess expected of it and 
constantly looked for. However, in ev- 
ery game the Terps were in there fight- 
ing to the finish and earned individual 
commendation even in defeat. 

With Guckeyson, Headley, Ellinger, 

Gormley and Daly of the backfield and 
Vic Willis, great end, and Charlie Zu- 
lick, Ed Fletcher and John Birkland, 
the only three to hold down the tackle 
assignments this season, to be lost, the 
task of the coaches in a difficult 10- 
game card next fall will be even big- 
ger than it was this year. 

This task was accentuated because 
so few reserves were used during the 

1936 campaign and consequently Mary- 
land will have to jump into the 1937 
season with a very limited number of 
gridders who have been under fire in 
actual combat. 

In addition to being highly attractive 
and entailing very little travel, there 
is another noteworthy feature of the 

1937 schedule. It will end on Thanks- 
giving Day against Washington and 
Lee. Maybe the 1938 card may be made 
ideal by cutting it to nine contests. 

These long schedules, that almost 
overlap boxing and basket-ball, even 
get too tough for the publicity depart-

Basket-ball Team 
Gets Early Start 

Basket-ball almost stepped on the 
heels of football before it could get 
out of the way and while the gridders 
were winding up their campaign the 
Terp tossers were tuning for the only 
pre-Christmas game with Richmond 
at Richmond on December 17. They

he is only six feet tall and will meet 
loftier men in almost every game. 

ley has six letter men left from 

last season in Al Waters and Waverly 
Wheeler, forwards; John McCarthy, 
forward or center, and Fred Thomas, 
Charlie Keller and Bill Bryant, guards. 

He got some good talent from last 
year's frosh in George Knepley, a 
real forward; Eddie Johnson, center 
or forward; Robert Neilson, forward, 
and Milton Mullitz, guard. George 
Remsberg, a center, also will be car- 
ried but he is not as far advanced as

Guckeyson, Bryant, Wheeler and 
McCarthy all were with the football 
squad and consequently were late in 

As the first team played before the 

jrridmen joined the squad, Johnson 

at center; Waters and Knepley at 

forwards and Thomas and Keller at 

guards. All except Johnson doubt 

will be regulars, with Guckeyson tak- 
ing the tap-off job from Eddie with 
the latter being in reserve. 

Johnson, Mullitz and Neilson should 
be valuable assets to the squad this 
season and be ready to step to the 
front in another year.

Mike Surgent, a fine pair of guards;

Prospects Bright 
For Boxing Team 

Alumni Club Pays 
Rival Compliment 

During half-time of the Maryland- 
Western Maryland football game on 
I December 5, in the Baltimore Stadium, 
the Alumni Club of Baltimore present- 
ed President Halloway of Western 
Maryland College with a floral football 
featuring the colors of W T estern Mary- 
land on one side and Maryland on the 
other. The ball was designed by John 
Silkman, '35, proprietor of the Silk- 
man Florist Shop in Baltimore. Pres- 
entation was made by Chester W. 
Tawney, '31, president of the club, 
assisted by his wife, Edith Stinnette, 
'32, Miss Ann Carver, '36, Miss Merza 
Tuttle, '36, and Miss Mary Stallings, 
who fittingly represented the Uni- 
versity's feminine pulchritude. 

Dance Successful 

The Football Final Dance held by 
the Alumni Club that evening at the 
Maryland Casualty, in honor of the 
squads from Maryland and Western 
Maryland, was a great success. More 
than citrht hundred people attended the 
dance, at which time the formal pres- 
entation of the Mayor Jackson Trophy 
was made to the captain of the win- 
ning team — Western Maryland. In the 
ncc of Mayor Howard W. Jack- 
et' Baltimore, the presentation 
made by bis representative, Mr- 
Jack Xorris. Following the presenta- 
tion the team from Western Mary- 
land and their followers paraded to 
the- tune of their Alma Mater amid 

applause of all present. 
It wat a splendid exhibition of what 

collegiate spirit and sportmanship 
should be. 

Among the distinguished guests was 
Dr. H. C. Byrd, '08, president of the 
University. He was greeted by Ches- 
ter W. Tawney, '31, president of the 
Baltimore Aumni Club. 

Shep Fields and his nationally fa- 
mous orchestra of Rippling Rythm 
made a big hit. George Weber, '33, 
chairman of the dance committee, de- 
serves a large share of the praise for 
the success of the dance. 

Maryland Draws Fans 

The Varsity football team played 
to approximately 44,000 fans in its 
five home football games, the largest 
crowd being at the Georgetown con- 
test at College Park, when more than 
12,000 looked on at a great battle. 

Band Is Complimented 

Maryland's Go-piece band came in 
for many fine compliments on its ap- 
pearances at the home football games 
and the one with Richmond U., in 
Richmond. It was declared the best 
in its section and among the best

Major Harvey L. (Heinie) Miller, 
coach of the Varsity boxing squad, in 
his first year at the helm, believes he 
has the makings of a successful team 
if he can fill the middle, light-heavy 
and heavy classes satisfactorily. He 
likes his talent in the lower divisions. 

Miller found seven letter men at 
hand when he took charge, Ed She- 
gogue and Charlie Gebhardt in the 
115-pound class, Tom Birmingham, 
125-pounder; Morty Schwartz, 145; 
Ivan Nedomatsky, 155; Mike Lom- 
bardo, who is good in either the 155 or 
1G5, and John Gormley, light-heavy 
and heavy. 

Gebhardt has given up boxing for 
the time being, at least, due to the 
press of scholastic work, and Gormley 
has not made up his mind whether he 
will come out for the sport this sea- 
son. With Shegogue on the job, Geb- 
hardt can be spared but the success of 
the team may hinge on Gormley's 

Blair Smith, a clever scrapper who 
could handle either the 165 or 175 
pound assignment in good style, also 
will not report until late, if at all. He 
was an irregular on the squad last 
year but when he fought he showed 

Birmingham, a good 125-pounder 
for two years, is showing to unusual 
advantage this season and should win 
most, if not all, his bouts in the ensu- 
ing campaign. His work has been 
highly commended by Coach Miller. 

Shegogue, Nedomatsky and Lom- 
bardo, and Gormley if he comes out, 
along with Birmingham, offer a nu- 
cleus that should make it tough for 
and rival team to combat. Lancelot 
Jacques is showing strongly in the 
105 pound class. 

Ben Alperstein, 125 or 135; Bill 
Yates, 155, and Ed Egnell, 212 pound 
heavyweight, were the aces of the 
1936 freshman team. Alperstein and 
Yates have reported and are doing 
clever work. Alperstein won all his 
three bouts last year while Yates and 
Egnell each won twice and drew once. 

Maryland has a tough task in its 
opening meet with Western Maryland, 
as the Terrors will bring a highly for- 
midable squad to College Park, Janu- 
ary 9.

gained all-America mention and has 
been singled out in special articles 
saying he doubtless was as good as 
any all-America selected.

rp HE BEGINNING of the Univer- 

sity of Maryland was in 1S07 when 
a charter was granted to the College 
of Medicine of Maryland. A perma- 
nent home, established in 1S14-15, at 
Lombard and Greene Streets in Balti- 
more, now is the oldest structure in 
America devoted to medical teaching*. 

In 1812 the General Assembly of 
Maryland authorized the College of 
Medicine to "Annex or Constitute 
Faculties of Divinity, Law and Arts 
and Sciences," these to be constituted 
an university, under the title of "Uni- 
-ity of Maryland." In 1813 a move 
was made to establish a "faculty of 
law," and in L823 a School of Law- 
was opened. Subsequently, a College 
of Dentistry, School of Pharmacy and 
School of Nursing were added. 

In 1856 an act "to establish and 
endow an Agricultural College in the 
te of Maryland" was passed by 
the Legislature. At the time no in- 
stitution of similar character existed 
in the United States. Under the 
charter thus granted to a party of 
public-spirited private individuals the 
original college building was erected 
at College Park, and the doors opened 
to students in the fall of 1859. 

For several years it was conducted 
as a private institution, but with ac- 
ceptance of the terms of a grant 
under the "Land Grant Act" of 1862, 
and aid by the State Legislature in 
1866, the college was brought under 
partial control of the State. 

Maryland Agricultural College was 
a military school, and continued as 
such until 23 years ago. Two of the 
principal buildings were completely 
destroyed by fire in 1912, and in 1914 
control was taken over entirely by the 
State. In 1916 the General Assembly 
granted a new charter to the College, 
making it the Maryland State Col- 
lege, and placing the institution on 
a par with the State colleges of 
other states. 

An Act of the State Legislature in 
1920 brought the old University of 
Maryland and the Maryland State 
College together as the University of 
Maryland. Since that date the devel- 
opment in facilities and services ha> 
been rapid.

This branch of the University provides education for Negroes of the 
State. It offers four-year courses in Agriculture, Home Economics and 
Industrial Arts, and two-year courses in vocational subjects. 

Efficiency and Economy 

TT is particularly worth noting that the Maryland Agricultural Agencies 
A are coordinated under one administration. In 1916 all of Maryland's 
agricultural agencies were combined under the Board of Regents of the 
then Maryland State College and the State Board of Agriculture. Again 
in 1920 legislation perfected the union of the University of Maryland and 
the Maryland State College under the Board of Regents and State Board 
of Agriculture. All laws granting powers and duties to various depart- 
ments and divisions were amended and placed under the administration 
of one board. Maryland's organization is unique in the country by virtue 
of this coordination and the saving incident thereto. 

illustration, a near-by state of about the same size as Maryland, 
with two less counties, appropriates nearly $100,000 for the support of the 
State Board of Agriculture alone. It then has to provide appropria' 
for its University which conducts its agricultural work as a distinct entity. 
In another adjoining state the appropriation to the State Hoard of Agricul- 
ture alone is over .-_'.' .000. The coordination in Maryland prevents jealous- 
ies among workers and agencies and duplication of work. Functioning of 
these agencies in Maryland seems to be ideal for efficiency as well as econo- 
my, and apparently the plan is being copied by other stati 
found practicable. 



for the people of the State to know what it is 
doing and how it is spending the money appropriated 
for it. The University is nothing more nor less than a 
service institution for the people of the State. As 
such, it should represent the highest type of govern- 
ment service, and a spirit of active interest on the 
part of the whole people will enable it to serve most 
efficiently the greatest number. 

The buildings and facilities of the University at 
College Park and in Baltimore are used to educate 
your sons and daughters; to equip men and women 
to serve you in such vital fields as agriculture, engi- 
neering, teaching, home economics, dentistry, sci- 
ence, pharmacy, law and medicine. Students come 
from all parts of the State and graduates go into 
every community of the State, converting their 
knowledge and training into service. 

Many people are prone to think of a university 
as a great institution which is above, beyond and 
apart from them and their daily lives. The Univer- 
sity of Maryland, with its manifold services and lines 
of activity, is affecting in one way or another the 
lives and welfare of the vast majority of people 
within the State. In addition to supplying some 700 
graduates each year trained in the sciences, arts and 
professions, the University, through its research and 

extension facilities and personnel, is rendering serv- 
ices of inestimable value to those on the farms, in 
the homes, and engaged in the industries and profes- 
sions throughout the entire State. Its contribution 
to health, through control and eradication of dis- 
eases of animals and human beings, and the savings 
resulting from its efforts to control insect pests and 
diseases of crops are merely some of the ways that 
the University is affecting the lives of thousands of 
people who are unaware of the benefits they are 
receiving from it.

of nutrition, home gardening, clothing, home furnish- 
ing, home management, health, and the possibilities 
of adding to their incomes through marketing home 
and farm products of high quality. 

Conducts the Rural Women's Short Course at the 
University each summer, which is attended by more 
than 700 women from all counties. Gives them a 
full week of work which mingles in proper propor- 
tion the practical, inspirational, cultural, social, and 

Cooperates with a State-wide committee in work- 
ing out a comprehensive program for Maryland agri- 
culture and rural homes. 

Supervises the activities in Maryland carried on in 
connection with the national programs for crop ad- 
justment and soil conservation. Through the adjust- 
ment program more than $3,500,000 were distrib- 
uted in benefit payments to farmers in Maryland, and 
the soil conservation program will distribute about 
$1,500,000 to the 15,000 farmers who have coop- 
erated in carrying it out this year. 

Provides a means whereby the University coop- 
erates with a great many agencies in carrying out 
programs which are for the welfare of large groups, 
or the general good. These include Federal agencies, 
farm and other organizations, commodity groups, 
breed organizations, and the like. 

State Department of Markets 

Prepares and disseminates reports on market con- 
ditions during marketing seasons for products. 

Inspects and certifies the grade of fruits, vegeta- 



bles, live and dressd poultry, eggs, butter, cheese, 
and canning crops. Products valued at more than 
$2,000,000 were inspected in 1936. 

Contributes to improved marketing methods by 
developing efficient and economic distribution, as- 
sisting cooperative associations, promoting personal 
contacts between producers and receivers of farm 
products, and assembling information on all phases 
of marketing in cooperation with Extension special- 

State Horticultural Department 

Controls outbreaks of plant diseases and insect 
pests by legal procedure, when necessary for the 
general welfare. 

Has retarded the spread of Japanese beetle and 
saved many thousands of dollars to shippers of 
nursery and greenhouse products. 

Certifies all plant material moved out of the State. 
In 1936 certificates were issued to 269 nurseries, 
requiring over 300 inspections. In addition, 3,000,- 
000 narcissus bulbs were inspected, and 1,164,21 I 
packages of plant material and 1,955 tons of sand, 
soil, manure and compost were certified as free from 
Japanese beetle. 

Seed potatoes and other seed stock are inspected 
and certified as free from disease. 

Plants affected with dangerous diseases, such as 
Dutch elm disease and peach yellows, are destroyed, 
with a view to eradicating the disease. 

Efforts are made to control white pine blister rust 
by eradicating wild currant and gooseberry bushes 
in white pine areas of the State. 

Live Stock Sanitary Service 

Controls and eradicates many diseases that are 
deadly to animals, costly to owners, and a menace to 
human health. 

Supervises State and Federal testing of cattle for 
tuberculosis. More than 40,000 separate herds of 
cattle are under test and the majority of these are 
tested annually. Tuberculosis infection in cattle was 
30 per cent or more in Maryland a few years ago. 
This rate has been reduced to one-half of one per 
cent, with a corollary reduction in danger to human 
life and property. All Maryland counties are "Ac- 
credited" for tuberculosis, or are now acceptable 
with the exception of two, which will be added in 
the near future. 

Has approximately 53,000 head of cattle under 
supervision for Bang's disease, and the disease has 
been eradicated from many herds. 

Controls outbreaks of rabies in dogs, sometimes 
by drastic action; human beings are given the Pas- 
teur treatment, and live stock that is bitten is usually 
destroyed and the owner indemnified. 

Conducts Maryland plan for control of hog chol- 
era by improved sanitary practices and without ex- 
pensive biologies. Losses from hog cholera have 
been reduced from approximately 70 hogs per thou- 
sand, when the work started, to I 2 per thousand. 

Prevents heavy losses of live stock through acute 
infections, such as the horse disease, known as en- 
cephalomyelitis, by prompt investigation, accurate 
diagnosis, and advice as to proper treatment. 

Continuously checks and studies chronic diseases 
and conditions of live stock. 

Determines causes of deaths of animals in diffi- 
cult cases involving intestinal parasites, poisonous 
plants and forages, and improper feeding. 

Maintains diagnostic laboratories at Salisbury, 
Baltimore and College Park to more adequately serve 
the live stock industry. More than 250,000 diag- 
noses were made in these laboratories in 1936. 

Certifies several thousand head of live stock each 
year as being free from symptoms of infectious or 
communicable diseases and acceptable for entrance 
into other states. 

Tested approximately 125,000 chickens for pul- 
lorum disease under State supervision last year. 

State Department of Forestry 

Maintains State-wide system of forest fire protec- 
tion. There are 36 steel lookout towers, manned 
during the fire season by guards equipped with cars 
and fire fighting tools. There are 700 forest war- 
dens and in an average year about 4,000 men are 
employed by the hour to fight fires. 

Saves hundreds of thousands of dollars in forest 
property and potential growth. This service costs 
$50,000 annually. 

Makes examinations, prepares plans of forest man- 
agement and planting, and gives expert advice to 
hundreds of landowners. 

Offers service at nominal cost for selecting, mark- 
ing, measuring and estimating the value of timber

.1 VM ART, 1937 



By Da. Frank s. Lynn, 'ot 

EUtOM NOVEMBER IT to 80 the Medical and Chirurgical Pac- 
ulty of Maryland and the Baltimore City Medical Society 

wore hosts to the Southern Medical Association at its 80th an- 
nual meeting. Before the meeting the medical profession was 
keyed up to a high state of anticipation. 

Committees of a general ami special nature were appointed, 
giving widespread recognition to the members of the profession 
in the city and State. It is needless to say that in this organi- 
zation, the scientific program, the presenting of exhibits and in 
the social functions incident to a meeting of this kind, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, as represented by its alumni, played an im- 
portant part. 

The following alumni acted as chairmen of their respective 
commit t- 

- huey EL Miller. General Chairman

L<>ud Speakers 

At this point it might be well to say 
that all meetings and exhibits were 
held in the Fifth Regiment Armory, 
and we do not believe a more ideal 
place could have been secured. All ex- 
hibits, both scientific and commercial, 
were displayed on the upper floor, while 
on the lower level there were four 
large rooms, two for medical and two 
for surgical meetings. Besides there 
were adequate meeting rooms for the 
specialties with smaller memberships. 

The first day of the meeting was 
known as Baltimore Day, in that the 
profession of the city furnished the en- 
tire program. There were two general 
meetings of Medicine in the morninjr 
and afternoon and this was duplicated 
by Surgery. 

Here it might be of interest to give 
a list of Alumni participating in these 
Baltimore Day meetings: On Tuesday, 
•mber 17, the Section A on Sur- 
gery, Dr. Randolph Winslow, '73, Emer- 
Professor of Surgery, was hon- 
orary chairman. Those taking part in 
the program were W. F. Zinn. 12: I. 
M. Hundley, Professor of Gynecology; 

Old Medical Building 

G. E. Bennett, '09. In the afternoon 
of the same day in Section A of Sur- 
gery, there were participating Charles 
Bagley. Jr.. '04; C. R. Edwards '13; 
Edmund>. "98; W. H. Toulson, 
'13; C. W. Maxon. '12. 

On this same day, in Section B of 

Surgery, in the morning were T. B. 
Aycock, '24; A. M. Shipley, '02; Monte 
Edwards. '17; Allen F. Voshell, Pro- 
fessor of Orthopedic Surgery; and at 
the afternoon meeting Dr. Alexis Mc- 
Glannan. "96, was honorary chairman, 
with the following taking part in the 
transactions: Grant E. Ward; Louis H. 
Douglass, '11; Thomas K. Galvin, '15; 
Frank S. Lynn, '07; Nathan Winslow. 
'01; Daniel J. Pessagno, '20. 

In the meetings of General Medicine 
our school was also represented by the 
following alumni: Dr. H. M. Stein, '14; 
W. S. Love, Jr., '2:!; Magnus I. Greg- 
erson, Professor of Physiology; Mau-

Uhlenhuth, Professor of Anatomy; 
Ross Mc. Chapman, Professor of Psy- 
chiatry; Huntington Williams, Profes- 
sor of Public Health; Julius Frieden-

Janus G. Arnold, Jr. On Wednesday. 
November 18, the general meeting was 
addressed by out-of-town guests, among 
whom was our alumnus, Dr. Fred W. 
Rankin, '09, of Lexington, Ky. 

We have thus far dealt with the de- 
partments of General Medicine and 
Surgery, but in the specialties one will 
that our alumni also took very ac- 
tive part- as represented by the fol- 
lowing: Clyde A. Clapp, '07; Lee <

Ritchie Coliseum 
Is Source Of Joy 

Kxcopt that Byrd Stadium may have 
grown too small and the old part of it 
out-of-date and that a Bwimxning pool 
would be welcomed with open arms, 

Maryland is happy over its athletic 
-it nation, both from a standpoint of 

Facilities and the men behind the guns. 

The two improvements mentioned 
doubtless will come in due time, but 
the BOOner they materialize the better 
some folk would be pleased. 

One great athletic blessing on the 
campus is Ritchie Coliseum which has 
proved worth its weight in gold for 
many purposes since it was dedicated 
live years ago, January 20, 1932, to be 

It not only has been a joy in staging 
.Maryland's basket-ball games and box- 
ing matches and for dressing rooms 
for the various teams, but it has been 
used for many of the bigger affairs on 
the campus, the most pretentious, of 
course, being the annual commence- 
ment exercises. 

It will house the Southern Confer- 
ence boxing championships this year, 
to which the University will be host 
on February 26 and 27, and in so many 
ways has added to the comfort and 
prestige of the institution. 

Only the other night the famous 
Ellsworth Vines-Fred Perry profes- 
sional tennis troupe used the Coliseum, 
as no place as desirable could be found 
in Nation's Capital. 

County and State clubs and organi- 
zations also use the Coliseum at va- 
rious times for their fetes and its utili- 
tarian value constantly comes in for 
praise. It has been the means of in- 
troducing many persons to the Mary- 
land campus and in every way has been 
a friend-maker for the University. 

Basketers, Boxers 
Are Going Strong 

Maryland's varsity boxing and bas- 
ket-ball teams were speeding along at 
a good pace when this was written. 
The Terp boxers had won all three of 
their meets, beating Western Mary- 
land, to 2; Richmond U., 8 to 0, and 
North Carolina, 5 to 3, despite it had 
three of its best men out in the match 
with the strong Tarheels. 

The basketers, handicapped by the 
lack of an experienced center of the 
proper altitude and the loss through 
injury of Charlie Keller, one of their 

. had captured live of the first eight 
games, showing plenty of speed and 

Eddie Johnson, son of the famous 

Walter, is developing rapidly at center 
and when Keller gets back, the Terps 
lUld rate among the best in the Con- 
ference. In fact, they are tOUgh to 
lick even with him out. 

Included in Maryland's basket-ball 
triumphs were decisive wins over Johns 
Hopkins, VY. ;. rn Maryland and Wash- 
ington College. 

Coach Is Officer Randolph iuahov 

Former Maryland ring star and now 
tutor of the Terp yearlings recently 
was appointed a second lieutenant in 
the Marine Corps Reserve in Washing- 
ton. He has been assigned as athletic 
officer of the 5th Battalion, Fleet Ma- 
rine Corps Reserve. He also will be as- 
sistant to the plans and training offi- 
cer. The 5th Battalion is commanded 
by Maj. Harvey L. (Heinie), Mary- 
land's varsity ring coach. 

Frosh Quint Shining 

Al Heagy has his Terp freshman 
basket-ball team traveling at a fast 
clip, easily walking off with the first 
four tilts, among them a 39-29 triumph 
over the strong George Washington 

His leading players are Charlie Nor- 
ton, Ogden, Utah; John Snow and Bill 
Kolius, Washington; Pershing Mon- 
dorff, Emmitsburg; Joe Kelly, Cumber- 
land, Tillman Scott, Mount Ranier, and 
Leo Muller, Baltimore. 

"All-U" Night Again 
Will Be Colorful 

February 13 — Saturday — which will 
be All-University night this year, 
promises to provide another one of 
those gala occasions that have met 
with so much favor in the past few 
years and which have packed Ritchie 

V. M. I. in basket-ball and Rutgers 
in boxing will provide the big sport 
events of the evening, with the court 
tilt opening the program at 7.30 and 
the ring match being the finale. 

In between the various extra-curricu- 
la activities of the University again will 
be represented, but this year it is plan- 
ned to make this part of the colorful 
program somewhat shorter and snap- 


Keller Student First 

That students play Maryland's ath- 
letics had an illustration when Charlie 
Keller, ace basket-ball guard, was in- 
jured in the Duke game on January 
16. He severely sprained his right 
wrist and will lose close to a month 
with the squad. While waiting for an 
X-ray picture of his arm to be devel- 
oped and to determine whether his 
wrist was broken, which it appeared 
to be, Keller, who has a big-league 
baseball career in prospect that might 
have been ruined in event of a bad 
fracture, turned to Jack Faber, assis- 
tant Maryland coach, and said: 

"Jack, do you think my professors 
will let me take oral examinations in 
case I am unable to write? I've got 
a good chance to get some A's and I'd 
hate to miss 'em." He was thinking 
of the mid-year exams which were just 
about to start. 

Young Terps Box Well 

Although they lost their first meet 
to Staunton M. A., the Terp yearling 
boxers are being developed from the 
"raw" in good fashion by Lyman Mc- 
Aboy, and by the end of the year he 
will turn some good talent over to the 
1938 Varsity. 

Maryland Graduates Take Part In Medical Convention

torical value. This exhibit was pre- 
sented by our Gynecological Depart- 
ment and consisted of 40 specimens of 
papier mache which w-ere used 100 
years ago in teaching this subject in 
our medical school. 

And the variety of the program of 
this meeting continues in the form of 
motion pictures depicting the technique 
in various specialties. Those contrib- 
uting to this part of the program were 
Edward A. Looper, '12; Cyrus F. Hor- 
ine, '19; J. M. Hundley, Jr.. Grant E. 
Ward. One can see from the foregoing 

that those four days of November, IT 

to 2(1. were indeed busy ones for guests 
and hosts. But in spite of that, time 
was taken out for diversion. Frater- 

nity luncheons, alumni banquets, golf 
and trap-shooting. 

On Thursday night of the meeting 
there was a great outpouring of alum- 
ni at the University of Maryland ban- 
quet. There were no formal speeches, 
but we could not let the opportunity 
pass without calling on our President, 
Dr. H. C. Byrd, who extended a cordial 
welcome to all alumni. The week was 
a great homecoming for our graduates 
from the south, both old and young. 
Many had not been back for years and 
very few of them had seen the many 
changes which have taken place on old 
Greene Street, not the least of which 
is the new hospital. There were smiles 
on the faces and pride in the hearts of 
all these graduates when they beheld 
this beautiful building.

Credit To Mr. Snyder 

To Mr. A. H. Snyder, "Extension 
Service" editor, goes the credit for 
compiling the comprehensive infor- 
mation about "The University of 
Maryland and How it Serves the Peo- 
ple of the State" in the January issue 
of the "News." Many laudatory com- 
ments have been received about the 
enlightening information contained in 
the article. 

More than 11,000 copies were sent 
out to Alumni and friends of the Uni- 
versity throughout the State. 

Romance Ends 

Albert Jackson Roberts, '33, former 
vice-president of his class, died of 
pneumonia January 1. Jack was en- 
gaged to Miss Rose Elmo of Hyatts- 

The day he died was to have been 
the date of their wedding, which had 
been twice before delayed because of 
deaths in the family. It was the 
tragic end of a romance which began 
in high school days. 

Able Jurist Succumbs 

Judge John Boyd Sears, '90, judge 
of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit of 
Virginia, lawyer, jurist and beloved 
citizen, died suddenly at "Kalamazoo," 
home of his sister, Mrs. M. B. Garnett, 
near Mathews, Va., where he had re- 
sided for a good many years. 

Judge Sears was educated at priv- 
ate schools in Mathews and the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, at Baltimore, 
Maryland, and studied law at the Uni- 
versity of Virginia, of which he was 
a graduate. After his graduation 
he took up the practice of law in 
Mathews and adjoining counties, and 
soon became one of the outstanding 
lawyers of the circuit because of his 
ability as an advocate and well-ground- 
ed knowledge of the law. 

State Senator 

In the State Senate of Virginia 
where he served two terms, Judge 
Sears soon came to be a distinguished 
figure, his ability as a debater and his 
quick grasp of the problems which con- 
fronted that body bringing to him the 
admiration and respect of its mem-

Anniversary Banquet 
A Brilliant Success 

On February 11, more than 1,100 
alumni, faculty aiul friends of the 
University gathered for the 130th an- 
niversary banquet at the Lord Balti- 
more Hotel in Baltimore, to commemo- 
rate the founding of our University. 
It was an unusually pretentious and 
impressive affair which emphasized 
the harmonious and coordinating spir- 
iting between all branches of the 

His Excellency Harry YV. Nice, '98, 
ernor of Maryland was the guest 
of honor. The Governor spoke favora- 
bly for the University and about the 
important place it occupies in the 
State. Hon. Millard E. Tydings, '10, 
United States Senator, was toastmas- 
ter. In his introductory remarks Sen- 
ator Tydings gave a brief resume of 
the early development of the institu- 
tion and the splendid service it has 
rendered the State. 

Welcoming remarks were extended 
by Dr. H. C. Bryd, '08, president of 
the University after which he intro- 
duced the guests of the occasion. Lt. 
Colonel L. McD. Silvester, '11, general 
chairman of the banquet committee 
opened the program and the Rev. R. 
W. Schmitt, S. J., of Baltimore gave 
the invocation. 

Guest speaker for the occasion was 
Dr. Lotus D. Coffman, president of 
the University of Minnesota, one who 
is recognized as an authority on the 
educational development of the land 
grant institution of the states. His 
subject was "The place of the State 
University in the National and State 
scheme of Education." His talk was 
instructive and enlightening, as well 
as a timely one, as the University's 
program for the advancement of edu- 
cation was before the Legislature. 

Glee Club Entertained 

Following the address entertainment 
was presented by the University Glee 
Club, under the direction of Harlan

Thomas Humphreys Spence Succumb 

*~* SPENCE, who died at his home at 
College Park, Md., on Friday, Febru- 
ary 12, was a native of Snow Hill, 
county seat of Worcester County, Md., 
a fact which largely influenced his 
character and personality. He was an 
exemplification of the old Roman max- 
im "Coelum iioii animum mutant, qiu 
trims mare cwrrent," which with slight 
local adaptation, might be rendered, 
"They change their clime, but not their 
hearts who cross the Chesapeake Bay." 

He was the only son of Irving 
Spence of Snow Hill and Virginia Hum- 

Thomas Humphreys Spence 

phreys of Salisbury. This connection 
with two of the most widely known 
and highly esteemed families on "The 
Shore," coupled with his residence at 
the county seat, brought him into con- 
tact with many people in every walk 
of life and stimulated an innate fac- 
ulty, possessed by him to an eminent 
degree, that of making intimacies and 
lasting friendships, "Bound to him with 
hooks of steel," which endured through 
life and embraced many of the most 
prominent men in the state. 

Having graduated from the local 
schools, Professor Spence completed 
his education at Maupin's University 
School at Ellicott City, and later at 
the Johns Hopkins University. 

Returning to his home county he 
was appointed principal of the Junior 
High School at Stockton and later 
principal of the Snow Hill High School, 
which position he resigned to become 

Professor of Languages at the Mary- 
land Agricultural College. 

Professor Spence came to the college 
in 1892, when it was reorganized with 
Dr. Richard W. Silvester as its head. 
He was then in the prime of his physi- 
cal and mental powers, with an as- 
sured character and personality that 
soon made him influential in all col- 
lege activities. 

A disciplinarian in his class room 
he mingled easily and freely with the 
students on the outside and took an 
active part with them in their field 
sports. He was greatly interested in 
athletics and did much to further their 
development on the campus. 

In the faculty councils the opinions 
of Professor Spence carried influence 
and weight. He brought to the college 
experience as an educator and in the 
management of youth and in his long 
years of service he devoted all of his 
abilities to the upbuilding of the In- 
stitution with which he had associated 
himself and to the mental, physical 
and moral development of those who 
had been entrusted to its care. He was 
an educator, he was a disciplinarian, 
he was an administrator, but he was 
sympathetic, he was human, and every 
student on the campus knew and felt 
that from Professor Spence he could 
always have a fair and open minded 
hearing and an impartial judgment 
and in him, if the facts warranted, an 
earnest advocate. 

The executive ability of Professor 
Spence was recognized by the Board 
of Trustees in 1912 when, on the re- 
tirement of President Silvester, he was 
made acting president of the College, 
which position he held until 1913, when 
Dr. H. J. Patterson was made presi- 
dent. Professor Spence was made Dean 
Emeritus of the College of Arts and 
Sciences in 1924, continuing, however, 
to give active service as professor of 
ancient languages. 

In his domestic life Professor Spence 
was singularly happy. In 1899 he was 
married to Miss Charlotte Calvert, 
daughter of Hon. Chas. B. Calvert of 
"MacAlpine," Prince George's County. 
Their union was blessed with three 
charming daughters, Virginia, Char- 
lotte and Mary who are now Mrs. Vir- 
ginia Irving Spence Lescure of Har- 
risburg, Pa., Mrs. Charlotte Calvert 
Spence Wilton of Charlotte, N. C, and 
Mrs. Mary Spence Montgomery of Col- 
lege Park, Md. Each attended the

Origin of Nickname, Old Liners 


Dates Way Back To Revolution 


QO you thought Maryland was called 

^ the Old Line school just because 

her students were more or less adept 
lisseminating that sort of conver- 

n. did you ! 

You may be partially right, that is 
concerning the finesse of the Maryland 
undertrrad a: shooting the "same old 
line." but that has practically nothing 
to do with the nickname of the insti- 
tution, which has a history many years 
older than the University itself. 

University of Maryland, of course. 
borrowed the name from the State, 
and. as for how the State of Mary- 
land became known as The Old Line 
3 e — thereby hangs the following 

Of the many theories which have 
be^-n advanced, the two most plaus- 
ible are widely divergent in origin. 
The explanation which is generally 
accepted today, however, is the one 
emanating from the New York cam- 
paigns in the War of the Revolution. 

According to the story, the Con- 
tinental troops were drawn up across 
Long Island facing south, with a sim- 
ilar array of the British directly op- 
posite. The Maryland troops held the 
center position of the American lines. 
During the course of the battle, the 
Continental troops flanking the Mary- 
landers began to give way under the 
heavy pressure of the British attack, 
but Maryland held her ground. The 
line of battle thus became bow-shaped, 
with the Oystermen at the most ad- 
vanced portion of the arc. The Ameri- 
can commanding officers thus began to 
refer to the lines of battle as "the old 
line." and "the new line." 

But the British advantage was brief 
and after a few hours the tide of the 
battle turned in favor of the Yankees, 
| ired no doubt by the tenacity of 
the boys from Baltimore. Upon seeing 
the lines of battle begin to straighten 
out to their original position again, 
Colonel Smallwood, commanding a 
Maryland regiment cried out "See! 
The old line holds!" It was one of 
the most heroic deeds of the Revolu- 
tionary War. 

From thenceforward, the Maryland 

soldiers were known as "The Old Line" 

and upheld their glorious 

record throughout the rest of the war. 

The other story which is told of the 
origin of the name "Old Line" is about 

the tierce skirmishes between the 

Marylanders and the Pennsylvanians 

over the then indefinite boundary be- 
tween the States. It seems that two 
lines were held to be the proper bound- 
ary, the original one, known as "The 
Old Line," being the one most favor- 
able to Maryland. The Maryland citi- 
zens, of course, defended this border, 
while the Pennsylvanians fought for 
the newer line, which would give them 
more land. It is said that the Mary- 
landers held so strenuously to the "Old 
Line" that they earned Maryland its 
name as "The Old Line State." 

Finally, when Mason and Dixon sur- 
veyed the boundary, completing it in 
17t'>7, the long bitter quarreling came 
to an end, and the Mason and Dixon 
line became even more famous than 
the "Old Line." 

The first of the two theories is held 
to be the most authentic, however, by 
the best authorities, so when next you 
receive your copy of The Old Line, or 
see Terp athletes in action on the field 
of conflict, remember it's the Battle of 
Long Island — not Great Neck. 

Turkey Case 

Robert McCandlish, Jr., '30, son of 
Robert McCandlish, '99, is an ardent 
student of the law. After graduating, 
he began the study of law at George 
Washington University and lived with 
his uncle, a practicing lawyer in Fair- 
fax County, Virginia. 

Bob now is practicing in the same 
town. One of his first cases was of 
considerable interest. It seems he 
was defending a man accused of steal- 
ing turkeys and, although Bob felt 
his client was guilty of making off 
with the fowl, he was successful in his 
defense and the man was allowed to 
go Scott free. Ever since then the 
young barrister's uncle has teasingly 
asked Bob whether he got a turkey 
as a fee. To all of this, Mr. McCandlish 
merely shrugs his shoulders and laughs, 
because the man has moved away and 
should he repeat his performance, at 
least he will be in some one <

Ring Team Shines Under New Coach 

Major Barvey K. Miller, Beinie to 
his friends, has a mighty good right 

(and left too it" you want to throw in 
another punch) to be proud of his 
first season as nu-ntor of the .Maryland 
boxing team thai be piloted to an un- 
beaten record in seven dual meets. 

Gaining six victories and one tie, 
that included triumphs over Virginia, 
North Carolina and Western Maryland, 
the Terp boxers registered 41% wins 
against 14' ■> defeats in the 56 individ- 
ual matches. 

The Terps beat Western Maryland, 
6 to '-; Richmond, 8 to 0; North Caro- 
lina, 5 to 3; V. M. I., 7 to 1 ; Virginia, 
5 to 3; Rutgers, 6% to l 1 -, and "suf- 
fered* - a tie with Catholic U. But for a 
decision (and many of the old grads 
were on hand) that was booed for 10 
minutes that cost Mike Lombardo a 
win, it would have been seven straight. 

Ed Shegogue, 115 pounder; Tom 
Birmingham, 125; Benny Alperstein, 
LS5; Ivan Nedomatsky, 145; Mike 
Lombardo, 155; Lancelot Jacques and 
Bob Walton, 165; John Gormley, 175, 
and Alex Males, who fought 165 and 
1 75, were the big guns of the team. 
Ed Egnell, soph heavy, was doing well 
until placed on scholastic probation 

and then 


ew ^oaci 

forfeits followed in that 

Three Set Fast Race 

Birmingham, with six wins and a 
draw; Alperstein with seven straight 
triumphs, and Nedomatsky, who scored 
six times and got a forfeit, were the 
only boys to weatber the campaign 
without defeat, but all the other regu- 
lars did remarkably well as did some 
of the pinch hitters, notably George 
Dorr, red-headed 115-pounder mitt- 

Miller will have a task on his hands 
next year, though, as he is going to be 
hard hit by graduation. Those in the 
senior class are: Shegogue, Birming- 
ham, Nedomatsky, Lombardo, Jacques 
and Gormley. 

Dorr, Alperstein, Walton, Males and 
Egnell will provide the nucleus of the 
1938 combination and this is not such 
a bad start. Both Shegogue and 
Jacques have another year of boxing 
should they decide to return and do 
some advanced work. However, there 
is no indication that they will. 

When this was written, the boys 
were putting on their final tuning up 
for the Southern Conference tourney, 
that was staged in Ritchie Coliseum 
for the first time in the 11 years of the

Impressive Wins 

Maryland riflist continue to score 
impressive wins in postal matches. 
Among those to bow recently to the 
Marylander's were Hopkins, Gettys- 
burg and Mississippi State. The 
Maryland team has maintained its 
splendid record under the coaching of 
Major Frank Ward and captained by 
Will .Jensen. 

The schedule will he concluded by

Terp Ring Squad 
Wins Loop Title 

W r ith Tom Birmingham and Ivan 
Nedomatsky winning titles in the 125 
and 145 pound divisions, Maryland won 
the Southern Conference boxing cham- 
pionship in the tourney held in Ritchie 
Coliseum February 26 and 27. The 
Terps got 19 points to Duke's 16 for 
second place. 

Ben Alperstein, 135, John Gormley, 
17."). and Alex Males, heavy, added the 
other points by being runner-ups. 

None of the other teams were close 
to the leaders. Nedomatsky turned 
the tide to Maryland when be gave 
Duke's favored Danny Farrar, nation- 
al college champion, a good beating. 
This bout was the highlight of the 

Basketers Thrill 
Although "In Red" 

Maryland's basket-ball team wound 
up its regular campaign in whirlwind 
fashion on February 24, when it staged 
a sensational rally to conquer the 
North Carolina State quint, 41 to 35, 
after trailing 6 to 18 at intermission. 

It was the finest comeback by any 
team he ever had coached, Burton 
Shipley said after the contest. Thir- 
ty-five points in 20 minutes is some 

Despite the fact, however, that the 
Terps finished so flashily, the quint 
for only the fourth time in the 14 
years of Shipley's coaching wound up 
on the wrong side of the ledger, win- 
ning 8 games and losing 11. Shipley, 
though, still has an average of 65 per 
cent wins at Maryland against strong 
opposition each season, and few men- 
tors can boast such success. 

Maryland figm-ed in some great bat- 
tles it didn't win. Duke won both of 
the tilts with the Terps, once by 4 
points and again by 3; North Carolina 
State took the first game in overtime, 
and Washington and Lee's great outfit 
scored by 41-35 in the best game of 
the year at College Park, except the 
closer with the W T olfpack. 

Problem At Center 

Lack of a center who could get the 
tap-off to any great extent and grab 
the rebounds off the backboard was the 
telling factor in holding the Terps 
back. Otherwise the assets were on 
hand for a fine team. Fundamentally 
no team to appear at College Park 
displayed better basket-ball. 

Al Waters, Charlie Keller, Ben Al- 
len and Bill Guckeyson are the only 
seniors on the team, and the last 
named may return to school next year, 
and he is eligible for basket-ball if he 

Waverly Wheeler, Bill Bryant and 
John McCarthy are the juniors on the 
squad, while George Knepley, Eddie 
Johnson and George Millitz were the 
sophs. All of the rookies played weli 
this season and promise to be aces 
next year. 

Shipley will also get a needed center 
in Charlie Norton, a tall rugged boy, 
and some other talent worth while 
from the 1937 fresh. 

February, 1937 



Al Heagy tutored a freshman bask- 
et-hall team to an undefeated season, 
winning 12 games, most of them by 
impressive margins. A two-point vie- 
tory over the Georgetown Freshmen 
was the hiurh light of the campaign, 
the winning basket being shot in the 
last 80 seconds of play.

rookies. These and several others 
should be a help to the varsity next 
year. Askins and Coleman probably 
are the leading prospects. 


Spring sports and grid practice now 
are populating the fields at College 
Park. Frank Dobson is putting the 
soph gridders through daily sessions 
that will last until early in April; 
Jack Faber and Al Heagy have tr.c

Burton Shipley is baseball minded, and 
Geary Eppley, turning from the in- 
door to the outdoor season, is continu- 
ing in a larger way activities that be- 
gan on the board before Christmas. 

Dobson is getting a line on his re- 
cruits for next fall, but the others are 
preparing for real business that is 
near at hand. Ship, Faber and Ep all 
should have pretty good teams, with 
the defense being the main problem in 
lacrosse, pitching the usual tas!: in 
baseball and some worries in both 
the field and running events in track. 
However, all should be capable of 
providing tasty performances for the 
old grads and students.

a big way — that Les Bopst is busy as 
a bee with tennis. Early workout . 
of course, were on the floor in Ritchi-

good varsity team and a freshman 
aggregation that will make the pr

Historical Sketch Of Law Schoo 

The General Assembly of .Maryland 

in 1812, authorized the College of 

Medicine of Maryland, founded in i v 

"to constitute, appoint and annex to 
itself three other colleges or faculties, 
viz., the Faculty of Divinity, the Pac 
ulty of Law, and the Faculty of Art- 
and Science-," and declared that "the 

four colleges or faculties thus united 
should be constituted an university 
by the name and under the title of the 
University of Maryland." In pursu- 
ance of this authority the University 
was organised in 1813, being one of 
the oldest chartered universities in 
America, coming eighth, according to 
official figures. 

While the fust faculty of law was 
chosen in 1813, and David Hoffman 
was elected professor of law, and 
published in 1817 "A Course of Legal 
Study Addressed to Students and the 
Profession Generally." which Justice 
Story in an article in the North Ameri- 
can /.'■ ri, ,<■ pronounced to be "by far 
the most perfect system for the study of 
law which has ever been offered to the 
public," and which recommended a 
course of study so comprehensive as to 
require for its completion six or seven 
years, no regular school of instruction 
in law was opened until 1823. This 
was suspended in 1836 for lack of 
proper pecuniary support and on ac- 
count of the small number of students 

who were able or willing to spend the 

time necessary, when admission to the 
liar was of little difficulty, to take ad 

vantage of the course of Professor 
Hoffman, whoso ideals of legal educa 

tion were far in advance of his times. 

In 1869 the Law School was reorgan- 
ised, and in lsTo regular instruction 

therein was begun. From time to time 
the COUrse has been made more compre- 
hensive and the Board of Instructors 
increased in number. Its graduates 
now number more than three thou- 
sand, and included among them are a 

large proportion of the leaders of the 

bench and bar in the State, and many 
who have attained prominence in the 
profession elsewhere. 

Two other Law Schools, the Balti- 
more Law School and the Baltimore 
University of Law, were organized 
under charters granted by the State 
of Maryland. These two schools, both 
doing good work and steadily advanc- 
ing their standards, were consolidated 
under the name of the Baltimore Law 
School in 1911. In 1913 the Baltimore 
Law School was in turn merged into 
the Law School of the University of 
Maryland. On July 1, 1920, the Uni- 
versity of Maryland and the Maryland 
State College were consolidated under 
the name of the University of Mary-

Landmark Of Early 
Maryland History 

(Picture on Cover.) 

Thinking of the Rossburg Inn as a 
famous breakfasting place where many 
Kay stage coach parties from Haiti- 
more and Washington spent their eve- 
nings, we visualize quaint old "Uncle 
Xed," the white-haired darkey, with 
his famous "dancin' riddle" and the 
dancers bowing and curtesying dainti- 
ly to the low, sweet strains of a 

Quainter still was the founding of 
this famous old Inn. Even the bricks 
have a history of their own, as it is 
thought they were brought from En- 
gland as a ballast for ships docking in 
Bladensburg, which at that time was 
a great shipping center. 


The keystone over the door of the 
Rossburg Inn has on it the name "T. 
Coe London," the date 1798, and also 
a figure which represents Silenus, 
teacher and trainer of Bacchus the 
God of wine. This is most appropri- 
ate, perhaps, for an inn because Si- 
lenus quite frequently over-indulged 
in wine. 

The building originally had a colo- 
nial gabled roof, which was changed in 
1888 to a mansard roof. At the same 
time the front porch was built. The 
upstairs floor, the stairway, the rail- 
ing and the archway en the first floor 
are all the originals. 

In the days when it was used a 
inn the front room on the left, which 
is now a laboratory, was the main 
reception room. The back room on 
the left was the barroom, which hail 
a private stair going down to the 
wine cellar. There were also frame 
additions on the ninth and south Bides 
of the building which were used for 
guests. These were torn down tome 

years ago.

Pres. Byrd Speaks At 
New York Dinner 

With Dr. H. C. Byrd as the guest 
speaker the New York Group of the 
Alumni Association held their annual 
Midwinter dinner party March 5. Mr. 
Fred B. Rakeman, '18, was toastmas- 
ter for the occasion. 

More than fifty people were present 
for the dinner. A short business ses- 
sion was held at which time J. Donald 
Kieffer, '29, president since the group's 
reorganization in 1935 was reelected. 
Fred Rakeman is to be his able assis- 
tant as vice-president, and Sarah Mor- 
ris, '25, the gliding hand as secretary- 
treasurer. Munroe Leaf and Johnny 
Burke are the co-recorders and pub- 
licity directors. 

Dr. Byrd gave the group the inside 
facts on the program and happenings 
at the University. The talk was fol- 
lowed by moving pictures of the box- 
ing teams, the float parade at Home- 
coming, and the Florida football game. 

In addition to several similar dinner 
parties held by the Club during the 
year, luncheons are held each Wednes- 
day at Planters Restaurant, 124 
Greenwick Street. Stop by and see 
the boys. 

Fifty Years Club 

Dr. John S. Diehl. '86, D. D. S., last 
■ became a member of the fifty year 

chili. For that length of time he has 
been an alumnus and for Dearly the 

ame length of time he was a prac- 
ticing dentisl in Washington County. 
Pot this achievement he was awarded 
a certificate for his faithful services 
by the Dental Alumni Association. 
Mr. Diehl now resides in Hancock, 

Maryland. II »n, Dr. Crown (). 

Special Reunions 

Five, ten, fifteen, twenty, tnd twen- 
ty-five year reunions are being planned 
by the various classes on Alumni Day, 
May 27, at College Park. All Alumni 
are invited to attend but these classes 
will put on the show. 

Classes of '32, '27, '22, 17 and '12 
are the ones who will take the lead. 
The fifty year class will be given a 
50-year club certificate. 

More Students Gain 
Scholastic Honors 

Forty-three more students received 
3.5 or better averages during the first 
semester of the current school year 
than during the corresponding period 
of the 1935-'36 term, according to 
figures released by the University 

Of the total of 108, thirty-nine were 
students in the College of Arts and 
Sciences, 26 in the College of Educa- 
tion, 18 in the Engineering College, 
15 in the College of Agriculture and 
13 from Home Economics. 

Although the Senior Class has the 
smallest enrollment, 48, the highest 
number of honor students, were mem- 
bers of that group. Of the remainder. 
2H were juniors, 10 sophomores and 
19 were freshmen. 

According to academic regulations, 
these students are allowed unlimited 
cuts from classes but are responsible

Old Tires Being Used 

Mike Levin, '15, has been granted 
a number of patents since 1927, but 
he now is working on one of great 
possibilities. It is a new product 
made from old automobile tires. His 
process has been patented, the manu- 
facturing is next and then the sales 
promotion work. The product has 
leather properties and has already 
been adopted by several companies. Mr. 
F. A. Sieberling, former president of 
the Goodyear Tire Company has been 
giving Mike some help. 

Next fall Mike expects to enter his 
son in the University of Maryland.

Glee Club Tour 

A spring tour will be taken by the 
University Glee Club early in April. 
Their first appearance will be at the 
Center Street Methodist Church in 
Cumberland on Thursday, April 8. 
The performance is being sponsored 
by the Boys and Girls 4-H Club with 
the Alumni Group of Allegany County 

On the following evening the Club 
will appear at the Hancock High School. 
Mr. Andrew Cohill, a prominent horti- 
culturist and Alumni of Hancock, is 
taking a very active interest in spon- 
soring this performance. This is the 
second annual appearance of the Club 
in Hancock. 

A third appearance will be made at 
Hager.-town under the auspices of the 
newly organized Alumni Group, of 
which Mr. Henry Holzapfel, J' 
chairman and Mr. L. G. Mat- 
is secretary. The program will be 
held at the Hagerstown High School. 

Coed Fencers 

Blades dashing, hair flying, and fem- 
inine pulchritude lunging all over the 
Field House. That was the scene at a 
coed fencing session. 

Every Wednesday ami Friday sonic 
thirty coeds gather at the Woman's 
Field House, where they are instructed 

in the various phases of toiling. The 
other weapons, saber and epee, are a 
bit too rough for the lassies according 
to their coaches, who, by the way. arc 
the same two boys who also direct the 
men's fencing team. 

But to get back to the girls. Some of 
the coeds have progressed far enough 
in the sport to begin actual dueling 
( its really called fencing, but the fem- 
inine mind, always romantic, prefers 
to think of the stab and jab sport in 
that light). They put on quite an ex- 
hibition. One girl in particular, hol- 
lered every time she was touched. Once 
her opponent faked a lunge, and the 
first fencer automatically let go an ex- 
pressive "OUCH!" 

The other coeds, not yet good enough 
to engage in actual competition, put 
on a different show. It consisted of 
lunging, retreating, advancing, and 
lunging again, and then repeating the 
whole exercise about fifteen times. 
That was about too much for the gals, 
though, and they had to take a long 
rest after that. 

The coeds are prepping hard for 
their expected meet, next month, with 
the Goucher "Musketeerettes," and are 
rounding into fine form. Yes, their 
collective forms were very good. But 
their faces weren't bad either.

Speaks On Spain 

In the first of a new series of lec- 
tures on world problems, the Inter- 
national Relations Club presented Dr. 
Wesley Gewehr, professor of history 
at American University, who spoke on 
"Behind the Spanish Front." 

Dr. Gewehr, who is rated in the field 
of education as an able historian as 
well as instructor, based his discussion 
upon personal observations made in 
Spain last summer during the height 
of the current revolution. This up- 
heaval in Spain and its influence in

Rossburg Inn 

•:iiini/ frost Fa 
more, Philadelphia and points north 

from Alexandria and Georgetown. 

Tradition also states that George 
Washington once stopped there, but 

this is very improbable as no record 

has ever been found to prove it. It 
is a known tact, however, that General 
Lafayette, on his last visit to Ameri- 
ca, stopped overnight at the Rossburg 

Old Negroes used to tell of being 
afraid to pass the Inn at night for 
they thought is was haunted. They 
said that many a time they had passed 
late at night and seen the place all 
lit up and had seen beautiful bewigged 
ladies and handsome bewigged gentle- 
men — dancing. 

Experiment Station 
The Inn was used as such until 
several years before the property was 
appropriated for the Maryland Agri- 
cultural College in 185G. For a while 
after that it was allowed to deterior- 
ate. At this time a man named Grab- 
oskii, who was at the head of the mili- 
tary and agricultural departments had 
it for his home. It was he who re- 
paired the Inn and planted the row 
of maples along the edge of the drive 
at the back of the house. History 
states that a detachment of the famous 
Confederate Army of Jubal Early 
camped around the Rossburg Inn for 
the purpose of cutting off re-enforce- 
ments of the Union Army arriving 
from Baltimore and North, when an 
attack was being made on Washington. 

Oldest Building 

The Inn was the mecca for the 
sport lovers of the early days. Many 
tales are told about the start and the 
ending of the traditional fox hunts 
which took place in this section. 

It is the oldest of all buildings of 
the University and in fact is among 
the oldest in this section of the State 
which is standing today. As a shrine 
to the history of the colonial days 
this old building should be preserved 
and maintained as a faculty club and 
the headquarters for Alumni. More 
tradition can be found around this 
old building than any other spot on 
the campus.

Dr. Randolph Winslow Leaves Enviable Record 

Dr. Randolph Winslow, Professor 
Emeritus of Surgery of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland) School of Medicine 
and one of its oldest alumni, died 
February 27, L987. 

A descendant of the distinguished 
FitzRandolph family, and of Edward 
Winslow, Governor of Plymouth Colo- 
ny and a Mayflower pioneer. Dr. Win- 
slow was horn in Hertford, North 
Carolina on October 23, 1852. Here 
he spent his boyhood and took a lively 
interest in the cause of the Confeder- 
acy. At the end of the Civil War, he 
came to Baltimore and entered Rugby 
Academy in 1865, and attended two 
years. He then went to Haverford 
College where he graduated with the 
degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1871. 
After this he studied medicine at the 
University of Maryland and received 
his degree as Doctor of Medicine in 
1873. Then followed postgraduate work 
at the University of Pennsylvania and 
in Philadelphia hospitals and a course 
in clinical microscopy under the late 
Dr. Joseph Richardson. In 1874 he 
was given his degree of Master of 
Arts by Haverford, following exam- 
ination after special study in advanced 

Returns to Alma Mater 

Returning to Baltimore, he became 
associated with his Alma Mater as 
prosector to the professor of anato- 
my, Dr. Francis T. Miles, and in the 
next year was associated with Dr. J. 
Edwin Michael as assistant demon- 
stator of anatomy. This position he 
held for six years and there was 
thus inaugurated a devoted service 
to the University which was main- 
tained without interval for the re- 
mainder of his life. 

From 1880 to 1886 he was demon- 
stator of anatomy and until 1891, lec- 
turer on clinical surgery. He succeed- 
ed Dr. Michael as professor of anatomy 
in 1891, and thereby became a member 
of the Faculty. In 1902, on the resig- 
nation of Dr. Tiffany, Dr. Winslow 
became professor of surgery and oc- 
cupied this chair until he was ap- 
pointed Professor Emeritus of Surgery 
in 1921. 

Studied in Europe 

Dr. Winslow traveled widely. In 
1883 be -pent a half-year in Europe, 
for the most part in the University 
and clinics of Vienna. Here he took 
courses of instruction from men after- 
wards famous. Lorenz, Woelfler and 
von Hacker. From the Billroth Clinic 
he brought back latest methods of 

Doctor Winslow Dean Rowland 

(At 130th Anniversary Banquet) 

surgical technique and samples of ap- 
pliances in use there and made early 
attempts in Baltimore toward the 
introduction of surgical antisepsis. 
Because of his enthusiastic interest in 
the advancement of medical education, 
he attended many of the national and 
international medical congresses. 

The call for a conference of the 
medical schools of this country was 
issued by the schools that now form 
the medical department of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland, and resulted in 
the formation of the Association of 
American Medical College. Dr. Win- 
slow was a valued member of the 
Executive Council of this Association, 
and his service in this connection 
deserves the highest praise. He stead- 
fastly stood for every reasonable pi'og- 
ress. He believed in real scholarship 
and was steadfast foe to sham and 
pretense of every sort. No half-way 
measures contented him and he was 
no disciple of expediency. 

President Medical Society 
He was vice-president of the Medi- 
cal and Chirurgical Faculty of Mary- 
land in 1897 and its president in 1914. 
He was a Fellow of the American 
Surgical Association, of the Southern 
Surgical and Gynecological Associa- 
tion and of the American College of 
Surgeons. He was for many years 

a member of the Judicial Council of 
the American Medical Association and 
arranged to take part in the annual 
meeting of this organization wher- 
ever it was held. 

At the age of twenty-five, he married 
Miss Rebecca Fayssoux Leiper of Del- 
aware County, Pennsylvania, and of 
this very fortunate union there were 
13 children, of whom 12 survive. Sev- 
eral are graduates of the University. 

As a teacher, his chief concern was 
to give faithful, competent instruc- 
tion and he required of the student 
genuine application and diligent work. 
His interest in the University con- 
tinued unabated and he visited the 
school regularly until about ten days 
before his death. 


Rushing Rules Change 

In a complete revision of the ex- 
isting Greek rush system, the Inter- 
fraternity Council last week an- 
nounced through President Dale Pat- 
tei'son the adoption of a plan which 
will govern 1937 rushing. 

Briefly, the newly revised system 
consists of a three week rushing peri- 
od to begin the first day of classes next 
semester. Official pledge day will fol- 
low immediately after the three week

first harbinger of a library on the 

campus. In this room general agri- 
cultural periodicals and newspapers of 
the State were available. Several 

- later the College Library, as his- 
tory state-, contained several hundred 
books, the Mercer Literary Society

libraries of professors as many more, 
all of which were accessible to the 
students ■'under proper conditions."

library in the new building was given 
student, Richard R. Pue. '94, and 
said to be "slowly assuming its prop- 
er place as one of the most impor- 
tant departments of the institution." 

First Library Committee 
An outstanding date is October 22. 
1901, when the first Library Commit- 
tee met and organized. Dr. H. B. 
McDonnell, chairman, called the meet- 
ing to order. Prof. F. B. Bomberger, 
was elected secretary. Professor 
Bomberger, who occupied the Chair of 
English and Civics, was especially 
active, and in March 1905, he was 
given the title of Librarian. About 
that time the library was put in much 
better condition for reading purposes, 
and soon after the books were classi- 
fied according to the Dewey Decimal 

In 1915 the Experiment Station and 
the College libraries were merged and 
the combined libraries contained about 
15,000 books and pamphlets. 

Important Changes 
The building was renovated and re- 
furnished in November, 1918, and the 
recataloguing of the books was begun, 
Library Extension Loans were inau- 
gurated, a course in Library Methods, 
to teach the use of the catalogue and 
reference books, was made a part of 
the curriculum of the school of Liberal 
Arts, the Librarian, Miss Miltana 
Rowe, teaching the course.

1928 and was succeeded by Miss Grace 
Barnes, "85, M. A., the present Libra- 

In 1925 the interior of the library 
altered to permit of closing the 

book stacks ami installing a regular 
charging system to prevent loss. The 
library was made a depository for 
government documents in L925, The 
greatest development in the library 
history was the new building, first 
occupied in April 1931, and an in- 
crease in the regular staff from two 
to six. more student assistants, and 
additional funds for books. Volumes 
on the campus now number over 60,- 
000. As many as 1,500 visits are 
made to the reading room during a 
12-hour day. Last year 65,557 vol- 
umes were loaned, 5,023 volumes were 
catalogued and 308 students took

Difficult Schedules 
Test Spring Teams 

.Maryland's spring sports teams are 
al)out to plunge into a campaign that 
will Beverely teat their mettle, with the 
outlook that they will not be able to 
match the great record made last year. 

The lacrosse ten, defending the na- 
tional collegiate title; the baseball 
nine, defending the Southern Confer- 
ence crown, and the highly successful 
track and tennis outfits of 1936, have 
their work cut out for them. Last 
spring these four combinations cap- 
tured 3(> of 47 dual affairs. They 
have 51 such events this year, in ad- 
dition to the track team's participation 
in the Penn Relays and the Confer- 
ence games. 

The lacrosse squad has 10 tilts; the 
nine is booked for 23 games; the track 
team has 8 dual meets and the net- 
men again have 10 matches. 

Nine's Outlook Best 

The nine appears to have the best 
chance to match its 1936 mark, its loss- 
es being less severe than the others. 
Fred Thomas, catcher; George Wood, 
southpaw, and Dale Patterson, pitch- 
ers; Gordon Treas, first; Mike Sur- 
gent, second; Waverly Wheeler, third, 
and Bill Bryant and Jack Egan, out- 
fielders, offer a strong veteran nu- 

Jack Hurley, Shorty Chumbris and 
Tom Scharf, infielders; George Knep- 
ley, first; Lefty Chumbris, outfielder, 
and (had Beebe, Kyle Ruble, Charlie 
Weidinger and Lynn James, south- 
paw, pitchers, are the other leading 
talent. All except Hurley, Beebe and 
Ruble are sophs. 

Loss of Charlie Keller and his big 
bat was a blow that is sure to cost 
some games. 

.lack Kelly, goalie; Charlie Yeager 
and Oden Bowie, defense; Parker 
Lindsay, Charlie Kllinger and George 
Watson, attack, are the letter men who 
form the backbone of the lacrosse 
team, which was hard hit by gradua- 
tion, especially on defense. 

John Muncks, goal; .Jack Downin, 

defense, and Bill Groff, attack, non- 

letter stickers of ir»:5<; ; Bob Neilson 

and Fred Hewitt, two clever attack- 

: Jim Meade, John Page and Bob 

defense, and Haskin Deeley, 

.\ keeper, from the last year's frosh, 

present the main hopes to fill the gaps. 

Bill Wolfe, defense, and Bud Ham- 
merlund, attack, two men banked upon 
to play regularly, were lost by unusu- 
al mishaps. Wolfe stepped in a hole 
and tore a knee ligament while doing- 
some personal conditioning work, and 
Hammerlund broke his ankle in a 
tough football game with Hopkins. 

Return of Bill Guckeyson, star 
three-event field man, after a year on 
the shelf with a minor injury, bolsters 
the track team greatly, but the loss 
of Coleman Headley, ace middle-dis- 
tancer, until May 1, because of illness, 
is a blow. Joe Ryan, sprinter; Paul 
Cronin, pole-vaulter and 440-yard 
ace; Hermie Evans, 440 and hurdles; 
Bill Theis and Logan Schutz, quarter- 
milers; Kenneth Belt and George Or- 
cutt, distance runners, and Charlie 
Zulick, shot and discus, are the other 
leading left-overs. 

Ed Miller, clever high jumper; Gor- 
don Kluge, all-around field man; Joe 
Peaslee, half-miler; Alex Males, jav- 
elin, and Nick Budkoff, shot and dis- 
cus, are the main contributions from 
the 1936 frosh. 

Net Team's Road Rough 

It is the tennis team, though, with 
only four letter men left, that has 
the hardest row to hoe. Edmund 
Beacham, Keaciel Krulevitz, Robert 
Land and Ted Lehmann are the veter- 
ans who will carry on, with Harvey 
Kreuzburg and Harry McGinnis, 
sophs, giving the main support. 

All the schedules are difficult. Dart- 
mouth, Michigan, Cornell, Navy, Duke, 
Rutgers, Yale, Georgetown and Temple 
are among the baseball foes, and prac- 
tically every power in lacrosse in the 
country, except Army, is on the stick 
list, the toughest faced by any team. 

Dartmouth and Navy, along with a 
half-dozen Southern Conference rivals, 
will be met in track, and the netmen 
have booked the best in the section.

Quint Gets Tough 
Break In Tourney 

Maryland's basket-ball team was 
eliminated by North Carolina State, 
42 to 35, in the first round of the 
Southern Conference basket-ball tour- 
ney at Raleigh an March 4, but there 
were extenuating circumstances. 

Fred Thomas and Charlie Keller, 
Maryland's ace guards, both were lost 
in the first 10 minutes of the game. 
Keller, in turning quickly to play the 
ball, accidently hit a State player on 
the face with his wrist, and was ruled 
out by Referee Proctor on an unjust 
charge of "slugging." Thomas went 
out a few minutes later with a cut 
received over his eye that required 
two stitches to mend. It came from 
an elbow jab by a State player on 
whom not even a foul was called, quite 
a contrast to the action in the Keller 

Under the conditions, Maryland, 
which was playing great ball with 
Thomas and Keller in action, did ex- 
ceedingly well to make the game as 
close as it did. Had they not been lost 
the Terps believe they could have won. 

Get A Flying Start 

Maryland's varsity and freshman 
teams in football, basket-ball and box- 
ing did well enough in the fall and 
winter sports, with the scrappers to 
the forefront, of course. 

In all, the six teams won two-thirds 
of their events, l-egistering 35 tri- 
umphs, losing on 18 occasions and fig- 
uring in two ties. 

They sent the spring teams off with 
a fine opportunity to have a typical 
Maryland record for the 1936-37 term.

Boxing Team Rules 
Southern Conference 

Maryland's boxing team climaxed 
an interesting and successful indoor 
campaign by walking off with the 
Southern Conference team crown and 
individual titles in the champion- 
ship meet held in Ritchie Coliseum 
February 26 and 21. 

Ivan Xedomatsky clinched the title 
by decisively defeating the great Dan- 
ny Farrar of Duke in the 145-pound 
final. This bout was the feature of 
the tourney and Farrar had been 
made the favorite by the public. 

Tom Birmingham, 125-pounder, won 
the other crown, defeating Johnny 
Murray, a fine scrapper from Clem- 
son, in the deciding bout. 

Benny Alperstein. who was just 
shaded by a thin margin by Jack 
Knepp, Duke ace, in the final, and 
Johnny Gormley, 175, and Alec Males, 
heavy- earned the other points for 

Only champs and runners-up scored, 
the former getting five point and the 
latter three. Thus Maryland got 19 
points, Duke wi nd with 16, 

Clemson, South Carolina and Citadel 
followed with 8 each, and North Car- 
olina got 5. 

Wake Forest, N. C. State, Richmond 
U. and Virginia Tech failed to count, 
but each showed some good boxers in 
the preliminaries. 

With Maryland having the best rec- 
ord in the regular season and capping 
it by taking the tourney, there was 
no doubt as to the Terps being best 
in the Conference. They also defeat- 
ed Virginia, 1936 champion, which 
withdrew from the Conference at the 
December meeting. 

Gormley and Males deserve great 
credit for helping to bring the title 
to Maryland. Gormley fought despite 
a painfully injured thumb that forced 
him to forfeit in the final, and Males 
entered the heavy class after having 
fought his other two bouts of the sea- 
son in the 165 and 175 pound divisions,

Indoor Track Meet 
Proves Big Success 

Swede Eppley, track coach and ath- 
letic director, and others of the Old 
Liners were pleased with the success 
of the Maryland-Fifth Regiment meet 
held in the soldiers' big armory in 
Baltimore on March 6. 

All agreed that the affair was grati- 
fying from the standpoint of keen 
competition and the support it received. 
It is intended to make it an annual 
affair and should improve with age. 

The Terps, too, gathered their share 
of laurels, capturing the A. A. U. tro- 
phy mainly through the efforts of 
freshmen, and figuring prominently 
in the collegiate events. 

Joe McCluskey and Bill Hay of New- 
York won the features, the Governor's 
Mile and the Oriole 660. Maryland 
was not represented in either of tl 
races. Coleman Headley being kept 
out of the mile by illn 

Athletes from Canada to M far 
south as Durham, X. C. took part in 
the games. Vale. Navy, Temple, 
Georgetown, Duke, North Carolina 
were among those to send delegations. 



Field Day Plans 
Are Being Made 

Swede Eppley, track impressario and 
athletic director, and his aide-de-camps 

are giving serious thought right now 
to the annual field day at College Park, 
which this year falls upon May 1. 

As usual, there will be the featured 
interscholastic meet in which there will 
he 1-'! open events and eight closed t I 
the county high schools of the State. 
Backing up the schoolboy competition 
will be four varsity contests, baseball 
with (icorgetown, lacrosse with Syra- 
cuse, track with William and Mary 
and tennis with Catholic University. 

There will be no freshmen meet on 
the program this year, as all the time 
is needed to run off the other events. 

While the times have not been defi- 
nitely set, here is how the program 
doubtless will be run: 

12.80 Start of scholastic meet. 

1.00 Start of varsity meet with William and 
•Mary to he run concurrently with schoolhoy 

1.00— Tennis match with Catholic U. 

2.00 Baseball game with Georgetown. 

1.00 Lacrosse game with Syracuse. 

Terps Upset Navy 

Maryland's rifle team, coached by 
Maj. Frank Ward, and doubtless the 
best ever to fire for the Old Liners, 
sprang a major upset on March 13 at 
Annapolis by defeating Navy. It is a 
rare feat to outshoot the Middies. The 
score actually was tied at 1,393 each, 
but Maryland won because of doing a 
point better work at standing, the 
most difficult shooting position.

Forty Gridmen Toiling 

Frank Dobson, head football coach, 
has more than 40 boys toiling in spring 
practice, and all of them, with the ex- 
ception of four, are members of last 
year's freshman squad. He is pleased 
with the outlook for adding needed tal- 
ent to the riddled 1936 aggregation. 

Goes Into Professional Baseball 

Maryland has 
lost its ace ball 
player, Charlie 
Keller, who has 
been signed by the 
New York Yan- 
kees and placed 
with Newark of 
the International 
League, a "farm" 
of the American 
Leaguers. Keller 
left school to join 
the Newark team 
in training. 

Doubtless the 
best ball player 
ever turned out at 
Maryland and 
rated the best hit- 
ter the college has 
produced in many 
years, Keller 
seems certain of 
a brilliant ma- 
jor league career. 
His loss was a 
great blow to 
Coach Burton Shipley's team. 

Keller, whose home is in Middletown, Md., will return to school next 
to complete his work for a degree. He also was a basket-ball star and 
standing and highly popular student.

Keller On Star Quint 

Despite the fact that he was out of 
a good many games because of an in- 
jured hand, Charlie Keller was placed 
on the all-State collegiate quint at 
guard by Craig Taylor of the Morning 
Sun. Coach Shipley rated Fred Thom- 
as, his other guard, his most valuable 
man in a round-up made by the Wash- 
ington Star. He took into considera- 
tion Keller's absence.

For Captain Sylvester 

In the history of our University, es- 
pecially the College Park School, there 
\\a> a man who led and inspired the 

rebuilding of a near-dormant institu- 
tion, ('apt. R. W. Sylvester, president 

of the Maryland Agricultural College 
from 1892 to L912, was a man of ster- 
ling character, leadership and ability. 

Every word spoken by those alumni 
who were fortunate to bo students un- 
der him have been laudatory to the 

highest degree. 

In recognition of his great accom- 
plishments in behalf of our University 
it is suggested that those alumni who 
were his students take the initiative to 
have a portrait painted in oil of Cap- 
tain Sylvester, and presented to the 

His ideals and wisdom seem to have 
been imbedded so deeply in those stu- 
dents of his who have today gained 
positions of prominence that his spirit 
should be kept alive and perpetuated 
upon succeeding generations. 

Volunteers are asked for and will be 
given every cooperation by the alumni 
office in their endeavor to accomplish 
the undertaking. 


"M" Club Trophy 

The statement in the March number 

of the Alumni News with regard to 

"M" Club Trophy is in error and 
should be corrected to say that the "M" 
Club Trophy is for county schools relay 

It was announced on the program 
that this trophy was awarded on the 
basis o' ive wins but it was 

originally designed to be ^iven once 
a year and will be continued on this 
basis. The winner of the trophy this 
year was Ilyattsville School of 

Prince George's County and not Balti- 
more City College as previously stated.

T1IK CALL TO COLORS has sound- 
ed tor the great arm; of Univer- 
sity of Maryland alumni to assemble 
at College Park, Saturday, May 29, 
1987. It will be the forty-fifth assem- 
bly of the association and the reunion 
of many old friends and classmates. 
Reminiscing will be the topic of the 
day. calling to mind the happy days 
On The Hill. 

Many changes have taken place 
about the old campus for those old 
grads of years ago. It is a revelation 
to view the modern developments in 
education and to realize that you were 
an integral part in its pioneer life. 

Despite the many changes there are 
many familiar faces who have molded 
the lines of this generation. They re- 
joice in seeing you and I need not say 
you will in seeing them. To the more 
recent graduate, your reminiscing is 
a great deal more truthful as the inter- 
vening years have not clouded your 
faculty of memory. But each year you 
can add to the exaggeration and get 
just as much enjoyment. Come back 
to the campus and refresh your mem- 
ory as it is like the spring of youth. 

The baby graduates will see many 
faces they said goodbye to last year 
and the year before. The fraternity 
house will not be strange to them, the 
meals just as enticing and probably 
more so. 

It takes all classes to make the day. 
Those who do not return take away 
from the pleasures of others. 

The first call will be for registration 
at 10 A. M. at the University Gym. 
Here you will find out w-ho is about 
from the bulletin board. Also get your 
luncheon ticket, your guest ticket to 
the lacrosse game, and proper identifi- 
cation for an alumnus. Then you 
visit the campus, look up your beloved 
profs, see the new building, and remi- 
nisce with Tom, Jerry, Bill, and Zal. 

At noon a buffet luncheon will be 
served in the gym for alumni, wives, 
sweethearts and friends. The cost will 
cceed 50 cents per person. 

The forty-fifth annual meeting of 
the association will be called to order 
by President Frank B. Bines, '04, at 
1 P. M. An interesting program quite 

different from any previous ones will 
be presented. A feature event will be 
thi ition of tokens of e-teem 

to all past presidents of our associa- 
tion. The highlight of the program 
will be a talk by Dr. H. C. Byrd, '08, 
our illustrious alumnus and president 
of our Alma Mater. The closing event 
will be the election of officers for the 
ensuing year, president, vice-president, 
secretary-treasurer, and four members 
of the Alumni Board. 

At 3 P. M. all those who have com- 
pletely registered will be guests of 
the Athletic Board at the varsity la- 
crosse game with Penn State College 
in Byrd Stadium. This invitation came 
through the courtesy of the Athletic 
Board, members of which are: Dr. L. 

B. Broughton, '08, chairman; Geary 
Eppley, '18, director of athletics; Prof. 

C. S. Richardson, '92; Dr. E. N. Cory, 
'09, and Dr. W. B. Kemp, '12. 

Following the lacrosse game tenta- 
tive arrangements are being made for 
a social get-together to be held in the 
University Gym, where a buffet sup- 
per would be served. A floor show 
presented by talented actors would 
be musical and coloi-ful. Dancing to 
old familiar tunes would carry on until 
the curtain falls. Alumni, faculty, 
wives, husbands, sweethearts, and 
friends will miss an enjoyable occa- 
sion if they do not come back. A def- 
inite announcement will be made in 
the general letter. 

When the letter arrives return your 
card to assist in making adequate 


Mothers' Day For 
Home Economics 

In conjunction with May Day on 
Monday, May 17, the College of Home 
Economics will hold its annual Moth- 
er's Day celebration. On this day moth- 
ers of all Home Economics girls are in- 
vited to the campus to view exhibits 
of the work accomplished by their 
daughters. The day has grown very 
popular and each year the attendance 
has increased. 

The arrangements are under the di- 
rection of .Miss .Marie Mount, dean of 
the College of Home Economics, who 
originated the day. 

The program consists of exhibits 
during the morning, followed by a 
luncheon in the Home Economics prac- 
tice house. In the afternoon the May 
Day activities will conclude the pro- 

Bill White Retires 

For many years the congenial, hu- 
morous, likable, and generous William 
"Bill" White was proprietor of the 
campus outpost. During these many 
past years "Bill" was losing so much 
money — at least he said so — that he 
had to retire and live a more leisurely 
life. Worrying with irksome students 
and faculty was "Bill's" delight as he 
was an English psychologist. But it 
got too much for "Bill" and he decided 
to retire. 

Today he is a gentleman of leisure 
reminiscing how his wisdom directed 
many a lad along life's highway. 

We are all for "Bill." 

The Melting Pot 

By P. D. Sanders, '24 
Local boy makes good. President 
H. C. Byrd, University of Maryland 
■ — Eastern Shoresman, Maryland grad- 
uate, able, industrious, courageous, 
likable — has in the short span of 
two years completely revamped the 
Old Line institution and set it well 
on the road to become one of our 
greatest State universities. Much of 
his success is attributed to three major 
steps. Fh - st, the various departments 
were reorganized on an economy and 
efficiency basis with instructions to the 
personnel that "future promotions will 
be based on work accomplished." Sec- 
ond, leading farmers in Maryland 
were called in to suggest lines of 
agricultural research and education 
that should be stressed in the experi- 
ment station and the extension serv- 
ice. Third, as money became available 
for additions to the staff, only the 
very best talent was employed. Ex- 
amples: Dr. M. A. Jull, to head the 
poultry work; K. C. Ikeler, to head 
the animal and dairy husbandry de- 
partment, and a dozen other distin- 
guished leaders in their fields. 

— Southern Planter. 



For those who have not found per- 
manent employment, it might be a 
splendid idea for them to consider the 
possibilities of entering the life in- 
surance salesmanship profession. A 
recent survey of average earnings of 
members of a class 10 years after 
graduation showed insurance men at 
the top. 

Those who might be interested in 
any type of employment are requested 
to contact the alumni office.

flROWNING ov THE QUEEN will be the climaxing 

in of the animal .May Day festivities presented by 

the Junior Class Coeds at 3.30 P. M.,on Monday, May 17. 

k. May Pay is an ancient custom, hut like 

eoed education at Maryland, it is comparatively young 

but has grown rapidly. It was in 1923 when tin- first 
May Pay was held at College Park. The cast was com- 
posed oi 16 ^irls before an audience of loss than 50. This 
year 126 girls will participate and with the attendance in 

I years as an indication, an audience of more than 
will be on hand. 
Those girls of 1924 wore the pioneers in the crowning 

event oi the coeducational department. In the early days 
the participants assumed full responsibility for arrange- 
ments and finances. They went to the forest for Bowers 
and eve r gr een trimming. One young lady, who unfortu- 
nately was from the hip city. New York, was unfamiliar 
with all types of vegetation, but she volunteered to do her 
bit and gather the necessary preen foliage. Upon her 
return she exclaimed with enthusiasm her discovery of 
some beautiful, shiny preen leaves. When asked to show 
them she was calmly informed they were poison ivy. For 
the next two weeks, needless to say, she was uncomfortable. 

Such are the experiences of the May Day celebrations. 

It is the custom to keep secret the theme of the narrative 
and who shall be the queen. There will be, however, some 
interesting highlights of the forthcoming May Day. Spe- 
cial honors will lie conferred upon Mrs. John L. White- 
hurst, first and only woman member of the Board of Re- 
She is a former president of the State Federa- 
tion of Women's Clubs and prominent in State affairs. 
Mrs. Whitehurst was appointed to the board in 1933 by 
the late Hon. Albert C. Ritchie, former Governor of Mary- 



A tribute will be paid to Mrs. Frank Day (nee Elizabeth 
Hook, '21), the first woman graduate of the College Park 
Schools of the University. Mrs. Day is a native of Prince 
George's County and a former resident of College Park. 

For the brave heart that served as chairman of the 
first May Day's festivities, Mrs. S. R. Newell (Esther 
Williams, '24), will be appropriately honored. 

Another crowning event will be an honorary tribute 
to Mrs. C. H. Hufford (Zita Ensor, '23), the first Queen 
of the May. Mrs. Hufford, a Maryland girl, came from 
Harford County, and continues to make her home there. 

Miss Ruth Adams, daughter of Mrs. Donald H. Adams 
(Eleanor Freeney, 24), will be the crown girl and Misses 
Betty Ann and Hildreth Newell, daughters of Mis. S. R. 
Newell, will be flower girls. 

On this day the State Federation of Women's (Hubs 
will he the guests of Dr. H. C. Byrd and in their honor 
May Day will be presented. 

In case of rain the exercises will be held the next day. 

"No More Ladies" By Footlight Club 
"No More Ladies," a highly sophisticated comedy by A. 

E, Thomas, has been picked by the local Footlight Club 
a> its final performance of the year on May 21, 22, and 28, 
an announcement made last week by Dr. 
Charles H. Hale, director. 

Fresh from its 264 consecutive performance run on 
Broadway. "No More Ladies" will make it- appearance in 
amateur dramatics on the University campus. Its author. 

A. E. Thomas, baa not allowed the play to go on ih'- road 
• Broadway, and the local performance will be 
the first out of New York. 



Military Day 

Among the great events of the 
spring schedule is the annual Military 
Day on Friday. May 11. when competi- 
tive drills will be held and the R. 0. 
T. C. stages its final grand parade. 
Sixteen companies will compete for 
the Governor's Cup and top honors for 
the best drilled company. Platoons 
and squads will also be judged for 

That which will probably attract the 
most attention is the individual com- 
petitive drill in the manual of arms. 
For the first time in the history of the 
institution, Welsh Smith, a former 
Washington high school student, won 
the honor for two consecutive years. 
The award for this honor is presented 
by the Class of 1899, headed by J. J. 

All other awards for military effi- 
ciency are presented at this time, fol- 
lowed by a grand parade before Dr. 
II. C. Byrd, Col. J. D. Patch, and dis- 
tinguished guests. 


Glee Club Praised 

Dear Mr. Pollock — At the enter- 
tainment and dance given by The 
Maryland Society of Washington on 
March :S()th. at the Kennedy- Warren, 
in celebration of "Maryland Day," 
March 25th. some of the members of 
the University of Maryland Mixed 
Glee Club were asked to be the guests 
of the Society, and to give us a musi- 
cal entertainment. Thirty-two mem- 
bers of the Glee Club accepted the in- 
vitation — 10 young ladies and 1G 
young men — and they, very ably di- 
rected by Mr. Harlan Randall, gave 
us a splendid musical program, which 
was greatly enjoyed by the more than 
450 members of the Society, and other 
guests present. I heard a great many 
complimentary things said about the 
Glee Club, and the members thereof, 
during the evening, and, needless to 
say. I. an alumnus of the University, 
was very much pleased at the very 
favorable impression made by these 
young students. They made a "hit." 
The University should be proud of 

its Glee Club, for it is a credit to the 

Fraternally yours.

Old Water Tower 

As the alumni secretary looks around 
the oldest part of the campus, he sees 
one of the long-to-be-remembered land- 
marks being destroyed, the old water 
tower, the mecca of many a soph-frosh 
struggle for the display of class nu- 
merals. It is said that in the early 
days the class would fly its flag 
from the tower. On one occasion, 
during military days, an expert rifle- 
man, known as Robert McCutchon, 
brought down the flag by cutting the 
halyard with a bullet. Many things 
happened in the days of yore which 
the student of today listens to with 
eager ears. 

The old tower has been but an orna- 
ment since 1926 when its use was aban- 
doned. It was not taken down because 
a wrecking company wanted $400 for 
the job. Today it is being sold for a 
profit of approximately $1,000 which 
is due to the clouds of war rising 
across the big pond. 

But down comes an old familiar 
landmark for the past 33 years. As 
the news spread about the dismantling 
the alert sophs wanted their numerals 
of '39 to be the last to appear on the 
tower. But the observing frosh said 
that will never do and upon the dawn 
of another day '40 blazed from the 
tower. A compromise was reached, 
assisted by the workmen's blow torch, 
and the class presidents, Tommy 
Scharf, the soph leader, from Glenbur- 
nie, and Bob Lodges, of Baltimore, head 
man of the frosh, agreed to climb the 
tower, declare a truce, and say goodbye 
to the cherished tradition. 

England In Florida 

A. G. England, '27, topographical en- 
gineer for the U. S. Geological Survey, 
has been transferred from Winchester, 
Va., to St. Augustine, Fla. England, 
who has missed but few alumni re- 
unions, is looking forward to a good 
account of the tenth anniversary^ of 
the graduation of his class and would 
like to be with them on that occasion 
but feels that probably he is a little 
too far away- to make the trip. En- 
gland was married in May, 1936, to 
Miss Mattyee Lou Cromwell of Mc- 
Gehee, Ark., a graduate of Delta State 
College, Cleveland, Ohio. Best wishes 
to a great reunion for the class of '27, 
says he. 


He (asking a riddle): "Why is it 
you have so many friends?" 

She: "I give up."

DUTCH K1..M DISEASE This dis- 
ease, which was not known to 
science until it began to kill the elms 

in Holland in L919, has spread to all 
parts of Europe and to America. More 
than 21.000 infected trees have been 
discovered in America during the last 
six years. Nearly all of these trees 
were within 2"> miles of New fork 
City, but there were a few in Ohio, in 
Indiana, in Virginia, and six in Mary- 
land. Their location, with one excep- 
tion, coincides with tin- ports of entry 
of elm logs from Europe, the railroads 
over which they wore shipped, and the 
veneer factories where they wore 
worked up. 

The first diseased lops intercepted 
in this country wore in Baltimore har- 
bor, August 7. 1933. They had been 
unloaded from a ship and placed on a 
oar to be shipped to an interior veneer 
factory. Not only were they infected 
with Graphium ulmi, the parasitic fun- 
gus which causes the Dutch elm dis- 
ease, but they were also infested with 
the Scolytis bark beetles which are 
known to be the principal distributing 
agencies of that disease. These logs, 
therefore, introduced into our State 
a disease capable of killing all our elm 
trees and an insect pest capable of 
rapid and extensive distribution of that 

The infected logs were sent immedi- 

ately to a Baltimore veneer plant, 
where t h i • > wore boiled for 56 ho 

in order to kill all insect and fungus 

life in them. Late in September of 

the same year, an American elm tree 
growing about 100 yards from the har- 
bor developed the Dutch elm disease 
This tree stood near the rampart in 
Fort ufcHenry. Following definite 
confirmation of the disease, this tree, 
which was a foot in diameter and 25 
feet tall, was taken down six inches 
below the surface of the soil an I 

All of the elms within a mile of 
Baltimore harbor were examined twice 
in 1933, and twice in 1934, and prac- 
tically all other elms in Baltimore and 
environs have been scouted once each 
year without finding any trace of the 
Dutch elm disease, except the one 
tree reported above and one found on 
Fort Avenue in 1936. In 1935, three 
elms with the Dutch disease were 
found in Brunswick and in 1 936 one 
was found near Cumberland. It is 
planned to continue scouting for the 
disease in 1937. 

The Dutch elm disease produces a 
rapid yellowing and wilting of the 
leaves and a brownish discoloration of 
the sap wood. All trees in the State 
suspected of having this disease should 
be reported to the State Plant Patholo- 
gist, College Park, Md. 

Alumni Board Meeting 

The spring meeting of the Alumni 
Board was held April 2, at College 
Park. Among the important subjects 
discussed was the association's prog- 
ress during the past year. The ALUMNI 
News has been greatly improved and 
membership dues have had an encour- 
aging increase. 

The program for Alumni Day. which 
appears elsewhere in this issue, was 
approved. It was also the board's opin- 
ion that Alumni Day for l'.l.'JH be Sat- 
urday. May 28, and that the Director 
of Athletics be requested to have a 
suitable athletic contest scheduled. 

A committee was appointed to ap- 
proach President Byrd to ask about 
the possibilities of having the Old 
Kossburg Inn renovated for a faculty- 
alumni club. 

The board favored the organizing of 
an employm -nt bureau in the Univer- 
sity for the centralizing of applica- 
tions and apportunity contacts. A com- 
mittee was appointed to study the pos- 

An amendment to the constitution. 
presented at the last annual meeting 
by Don Adams, was approved by the 
board for passage at the forthcoming 
meeting of the Association. The amend- 
ment: Officers of the association are 
to be elected at the annual meeting of 
the Association, except the secretary- 
treasurer, who shall be elected by the 
Alumni Board at its first meeting fol- 
lowing the annual election, and their 
terms of office shall be for one year 
from date of election or until their 
successors qualify. 

The nominating committee for th" 
ensuing year is as follows: Chester 
W. Tawney, chairman; Douglas Wal- 
lop, Donald Kieffer, L. G. Mathias, H. 
M. Carroll, Mary Stewart York, and 
George Clendaniol. 

Prof: "Will you please stop ex- 
changing notes in the back of the

Prof: "Oh, pardon me."

Alpersiein Gains U. S. Ring Title 



DENNY AJperstein, 136-pound box- 
er, has added to the lustre of the 
.Mai viand season by bringing home 
the lightweight crown from the Na- 
tional Collegiate title tourney which 

was held at Los Angeles. 

AJperstein whipped three great col- 
lege scrappers on his way to the cham- 
pionship. First he gained a decision 
over Joe Brocato of Tulane, South- 
eastern Conference ruler, then he dis- 
posed of Karl Drexel of San Jose 
College, and wound up by outpoint- 
ing Bob Bates of Washington State 
in the final engagement. Bates had 
disposed of Jack Kneipp of Duke, 
Southern Conference champ, who beat 
AJperstein in the loop tourney held in 
Ritchie Coliseum late in February. So 
Alperstein gained a title and got re- 
venge for one he didn't win. 

Tom Birmingham, 125-pound South- 
c in Conference champ, the only other 
Terp boxer to make the trip to the Pa- 
cific Coast, lost in the semi-finals after 
drawing a bye in the first round. 
Birmingham fought a great fight in 
losing a close decision to Carl Eck- 
strom of North Dakota. Eckstrom 
later was voted to be the best scrapper 
in the tournament. 

Coach Heinie Miller accompanied 
the Terps to the Coast on a trip that 
was made both ways by airplane. 
Grid Drills Pleasing 
OPHIXG football has ended at Mary- 
^ land and Coach Frank Dobson is 
pleased with the results obtained and 
the outlook for getting some needed 
assets for the varsity next fall. In 
fact, the oncoming Sophs appear to be 
about the best rookie material, quanti- 
ty and quality considered, sent up for 
>od many years. 

In fact, except for the inability to 
(ill the shoes of such a brilliant all- 
around back as Mill Cuckeyson and the 
footwear of such a scintillating block- 
ing hack as John Gormley, the team 
for next fall could look to a better 
on than in 1936. The line, as a 
ile, promises to be abler and John- 
ny Carliss, Pershing Mondorff and 
Charlie Norton should plug holes left 

by heavy losses in the 1936 backfield.

tackle or guard, are among the best 
of a highly promising lot of linemen, 
most of whom, though, are just in the 
process of development. 

The drills foretold that Maryland's 
attack next fall will be run from the 
single-wing and short-kick formations, 
and that the double-wing, conspicuous 
and effective for many years in Byrd- 
coached elevens, will not be in evidence. 

Dobson never used the double-wing 
in his 27 years of successful coaching 
before coming to Maryland, but kept 
it as a part of the Terp attack during 
the last two seasons, first, when he 
was field coach with Jack Faber at 
the helm, and last year when he was 
head mentor. 

The coaching staff next fall will be 
the same as last season, with Faber 
as Dobson \s assistant; Al Heagy as 
line mentor and Al Woods as fresh- 
man tutor. Woods now is a member 
of the faculty, having recently been 
appointed as assistant professor of 
agronomy by Prof. J. V. Metzger, 
head of that department. 
Zalesak Coaching Frosh 
T7VMILK Zalesak, '24, who used to 
tend goal for the varsity lacrosse 

Spring Sports Thriving 

team, is giving a helping hand to his 
alma mater by coaching the yearlings. 
Zal hasn't a world of talent, but is 
doing a good job and broke even in 
his first two games, beating Baltimore 
Poly after losing to Baltimore City 
College. His charges showed a keen 
knowledge of the fundamentals in the 
second tilt. 


Bel Air Is Helpful 

1>EL AIR, Md., certainly has been 
good to the Terp track team. Right 
r.ow, Frank Cronin, fi-om that place, 
is one of the mainstays of the varsity 
team. Running the 100, 220 and 440 
at various times and pole-vaulting to 
victory in most meets. 

Cronin recently set the school mark 
for the 440 at 49.2 in beating Johnny 
Hofstetter, noted Dartmouth runner, 
and with Joe Ryan, regular sprinter out 
with a bad leg, he went to the res- 
cue is other meets in the shorter dis- 
tances and came home in front most 
of the time. 

Now Maryland has Roland Hulshart, 
sprinter; Jack Archer, quarter-miler, 
half-miler and broad jumper, and Jim 
Kehoe, half-miler and miler, as Bel 
Air contributions on the freshman 
team and all are sparkling. Hulshart 
in a recent meet ran the 100 in 10 se- 
conds flat and stepped the 220 in 22.4. 
Keller Highly Praised 
/CHARLIE Keller, Maryland's great 
^ ball player from Middletown, Md., 
who went to the Newark Beai - s as the 
property of the New York Yankees, 
is making a hit with the International 
League Club. Here is what Oscar 
Vitt, manager of Newark, had to say 
about Charlie: 

"Only once before in my life have 
I seen a young player hit the ball as 
far as young Keller. It was back in 
1919 when I was coach of the Red Sox 
and we were training at Tampa. 

"Our manager, Ed Barrow, decided 
to make an outfielder out of a young 
pitcher named Ruth, and he lost the 
ball over the distant race track. 

"I am not predicting Keller will be 
another Ruth, and if God gives him 
good health there is no reason why 
he shouldn't be. The boy simply can't 
miss. He's only 19 and can hit a ball 


1 * > : > T 


even bit as good as Ruth could el 

that i 

"\lf has those big shoulders, can 

throw anil field, aiul. more important, 

ho le\ all." 

Joe McCarthy, pilot of the Now 

York Chih. also was quoted a- Baying 

that Keller would be in the Yankee 

outfield ■ - >n.

OPRING sports were sailing along at a 
^ merry pace when this was written, 
with the outlook that tho Terns would 

hold their end up in good stylo a< 
Tho hermhall team had won four of 

its five game, scoring '"'7 runs and 
making 61 hits: tho track squad had 
broken even in four meets, taking 
two of three within tho Southern Con- 
ference; tho lacrosse aggregation, al- 
though bowing to Baltimore A. C. and 
Mount Washington after boating Har- 
dily, is a capablo college ton. 
whilo the tonnis players wore sailing 
along: on a 50-50 basis. 

Inexperience or. defense is tho thorn 
in the side of the lacrosse team, while 
the tracksters are short on hurdlers 
and without a sprinter much of the 
time with Ryan suffering: from a bad 

Bill Guckeyson, who returned to 
track after a year on the baseball 
team, has been scoring: heavily in the 
shot and discus, winning- most of 
the time, but had to remain out of the 
javelin throw in the three meets after 
winning: the event against Dartmouth. 
: Thomas, flashy g-uard. is the 
first Maryland basketer to pass the 
Ion point mark this season. He rang: 
up 103 in his first 13 games to lead 
the Terps by a big- margin. 

Public Servant 

J. Frank Harper. '88, LL.B., former 
State Senator from Queen Anne's 
County and for the last 17 year 
member of the Public Service Commis-

appointed to that body August *5. 1919, 
by former Governor Harrington. Be 
was a native of Centreville, Md., and 
had ably served his county in many- 
public offices. 

Whitehurst Hall 

While looking about for an ap 
propriate name for tho now girls" dor- 
mitory it is suggested that it bo named 
Whitehurst Hall in honor ot' tho first 
and only woman member of tho Hoard 

of Regents. 
It seems to bo a custom to honor 

those who are first in some groat move- 
ment, and Mrs. Whitehurst is certainly 
a pioneer in tho coeducational develop- 
ment in tho State University.

Coed Debaters Tie 

A^ a I'limax bo their most BUCCeSS 
fill season in Maryland forensic his- 
tory, the two coed teams entered in 
the Grand Eastern tournamenl tied for 
first place with North Carolina state 
Teachers College. 

The Old Line debaters competed 
against twenty-nine colleges, repre- 
senting the Fast's leading coed arguers 
in the three-day tourney held on the 
Winthrop College campus at Rock- 
hill, S. C. 

The affirmative team, composed of 
Ruth Kreiter and Ruth Lowry, debated 
on the question: "Resolved: That Con- 
gress should be empowered to lix min- 
imum wages and maximum hours," 
won four out of five of the opening 
rounds to enter the finals. Maryland's 
negative team of Carolyn Clugston and 
Mildred Hearn debating on the same 
question, captured three out of five to 
likewise enter the final round. 

Male Debaters Win 

Upholding the negative side of the 
question, "Resolved: That Congress 
should be empowered to fix minimum 
hours," the Old Line debate team re- 
turned home from its Northern inva- 
sion with a clean sweep over New 
York University and Yillanova.

has been in the professional circuit he 

has slugged close to the ,500 average, 
despite a short layoff with an injured 
leg. His hitting has put the Bears in 
first place. 

Keller, a chunky outfielder, comes 
from Middletown, Md.. and will be long 
remembered as a former diamond and 
basket-ball star. All alumni are urged 
to be present, and any desiring to con- 
tribute toward a trophy arc requested 
to send it to the Alumni office.

■^ Chi Sigma, professional chemis- 
try fraternity, with the assistance of 
the chemistry department, presented 
the seventh edition of the Biennial 
Chem Sho, Thursday evening, April 8. 

As usual, invitations were extended 
to the chemistry classes of high schools 
within a radius of 50 miles and, 
through the medium of Washington 
and Baltimore newspapers, to the gen- 
eral public. The record attendance on 
a rainy evening testified to the repu- 
tation and popularity of the event. 

Interesting Exhibits 

Some of the exhibits in each divi- 
sion of the department found particu- 
larly interesting to the visitors were: 

The semi-plant scale equipment of 
the new Industrial Chemistry Labora- 
tory in the Arts and Science Building, 
including filter presses, a vacuum drier, 
hydraulics apparatus and a huge gas- 
fired furnace; the spectroscopic ap- 
paratus, the fluorescence and radioac- 
tivity demonstrations and student mod- 
els of sulphuric acid processes in the 
Inorganic Laboratory; cathode ray 
tubes and other spectacular apparatus 
on display through the courtesy of the 
Physics Department, a visual dem- 
onstration of the effects of growth 
regulators (hormones) in plant growth 
in the Plant Physiology Laboratory. 


Items of unusual interest in the 
Physical Chemistry Laboratories in- 
cluded a device for regulating pres- 
sure employing a vacuum tube recti- 
fier and a photo-electric relay, demon- 
strations of polaroids, a complete dem- 

onstration of every available method 
for measuring hydrogen ion concen- 
trations (colormetric, and electromet- 
ric, including the glass electrode) and 
a working model of the arc process 
for nitrogen fixation. 

The State Feed and Fertilizer Con- 
trol Laboratories were open for inspec- 
tion, displaying the typical operations 
involved in their analyses. 

The Organic Department opened 
their research laboratory to the public. 
Apparatus on display included a large 
extractor and various devices for anal- 
ysis. Typical student set-ups were on 
view in the elementary laboratories, as 
well as exhibits indicating the natural 
origin of many organic materials. 

Glass Blowing 

Exhibitions of glass blowing by two 
students, one an undergraduate, were 
major sources of attraction during the 

Considerable credit was due to the 
many prominent industrial concerns 
which furnished most attractive dis- 
plays of their products. 

An innovation of this show was the 
double performance of a stage show 
in the auditorium featuring a liquid 
air demonstration by Dr. M. M. Har- 
ing and chemiluminescence by Justin 
Paddleford, president of the frater- 
nity and in charge of the entire pro- 
gram. A capacity crowd was in at- 
tendance at both presentations. 

Possibly the most concise summary 
of the show may be expressed by the 
one common criticism of the visitors: 
"There is too much to see." 

followed after the destructive pests 
have abandoned operations for the 

Annual feeding and spraying of this 
tree are regarded as essential in pre- 
serving its life for future decades.

Student Government Leaders 





Officers For '37-38 



President of the Student Govern- 
ment A bs ition is the office of popu- 
larity, leadership, and fellowship. To 
this office John Muncks. an engineer- 
ing student from Baltimore, was elect- 
ed by a vote of 662 — 584. Muncks is 
a member of Phi Delta Theta and has 
attained membership in several hon- 
orary groups. 

It was a close race between two ath- 
letes for the vice-presidency. Waver- 
ly Wheeler, of Washington, D. C, a 
football, basket-ball, and baseball play- 
er of noted ability, defeated his fellow 
team mate in the same sports, William 
Bryant, of Takoma Park. As both 
have winning ways, its is a mystery 
as to whether the coed voters turned 
the trick. 

The modest but cheerful and friendly 
Dorothy Hobbs of Linden, Md., deci- 
sively captured the secretary bono 

Mike Sargent, of Eckley, Pa., and a 
student of Physical Education, is the 
president of the Men's League, a part 
of the Student Government Associa- 
tion. Mike is remembered for his grid- 
iron and diamond performances. 

From the ranks of Kappa Kappa 
Gamma, Ruth Lowry, of Baltimore, 
captured the presidency of the Wo- 
men's League, while Jean Patter 

a sorority sister and daugher of Dr. 
Alex Patterson, '07, D. D. S., is second 
in command. Jane Kephart, a Kappa 
Delta of Takoma Park, won the secre- 

In the Y. W. C. A., Elinor Brough- 
ton, daughter of Dr. L. B. Broughton, 
'08, head of the Chemistry Depart- 
ment, was elected president. 

The closest race in the elections, as 
recorder of points in the Women's Stu- 
dent Government Association, was be- 

tween Bess Patterson (the winner), 
and Margaret Crisp, both daughters of 
alumni. Bess Patterson is the second 
daughter of Dr. Alex Patterson, '07, 
D. D. S., and Margaret Crisp is the 
second daughter of A. Byron Crisp, 
'07, of the College Park Schools, to 
enter the University, 

With the elections on the shelf, se- 
niors forget their cares and new offi- 
cers prepare for exams and look for- 
ward to next year.

Maryland Mapping Agency 

I \ \ IKW of tlic recent impetus given 
■*■ national and regional planning, the 

utilization of natural resources ami 

development of community industrial 
and commercial projects, a .Maryland 
Mapping Agency has been sponsored 

by the .Maryland state Planning Com- 
mission and the University. The nci'ii- 
cy was organized and is directed by 
Professor S. S. Steinberg, acting dean 
of the College of Engineering, as a 
project of the Works Progress Admin- 
istration and in cooperation with the 
National Resources Committee, Head- 
quarters for the agency is located in 
the Engineering Building at College 

Already the agency has proved it- 
self of great value to the engineers 
and citizens of Maryland, and has 
attracted nation-wide attention among 
engineers and surveyors. 

A Burvey made by Professor Stein- 
berg sometime ago showed that more 
than 20 state organizations were map- 
ping Maryland for various purposes. 
In addition, almost an equal number 
of Federal orgaizations were making 
maps of the State. To these must be 
added the large number of city, county 
and private units, each of which is en- 
gaged in similar surveying and map- 
ping work. 

It became evident that with three 
score or more uncoordinated agencies 
producing maps of Maryland, an en- 
gineer or citizen seeking map informa- 
tion might of necessity have to visit 
a large number of these organizations 
in order to secure certain desired in- 
formation. There was then conceived 
the idea of having a central agency 
at which would he collected and cor- 
related the various maps of Maryland 
and its suh-divisions for the conveni- 
ence of those who needed such infor- 

This led to the organization of the 

Maryland Mapping Agency, one of 

whose functions is the establishment 

of a library of maps and charts of the 

I hort time this central 

ttcy ha> been operating, it has 

tided fully the expectations of those 

who red it. Many organiza- 

llOUi the Sta'e. as well a - 

and private i 
availed themselves of the 
rendered by the agency, it 

■•d the attention of 

which, realizing tin 

istence of similar conditions, have 
studied Maryland's program. 

In addition to studying, classifying, 
preserving, and filing maps, the agen- 
cy has several other important func- 
tions: it coordinates the efforts of the 
many agencies. Federal, State, city, 
county, and private, making surveys 
and maps in Maryland in order to 
avoid duplication and overlapping; it 
serves annually as a central meeting 
point for representatives of other 
Maryland map-making organizations 
to discuss, coordinate and plan for 
mapping of the State; and plans to 
develop uniform specifications for sur- 
veying and mapping. 

As a result of the Civil Woiks Ad- 
ministration surveying project, that 
was conducted in Maryland in 1934 
under the direction of Professor Stein- 
berg as the representative of the U. 
S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, there has 
been developed in the State what is 
known as a plane coordinate system. 
This network of lines and elevations 
ties in with that established by the 
national government. Until recently 
the Maryland Mapping Agency has 
had a field party extending these 
lines. The eventual completion of this 
survey network will make it possible 
to tie in all boundaries of private and 
public property in such a way as to 
make them indestructible. This will 
eliminate much of the confusion and 
and litigation that has resulted from 
conflicting property boundaries. 

Woods Now On Staff 

A L WOODS, Maryland backfield star 
**■ in 1930, '31, and 32, now is a mem- 
ber of the teaching staff at the Uni- 
versity, having recently been named 
assistant professor of Agronomy. He

year he turned out a snappy, finely- 
coached combination that won four 
games and tied one. His charges 
showed a varied offense and unusual 
teamwork for a yearling eleven.

1931 and '.",:.'. and the latter season was 
named as the best gridder in the Dis-

Oldest Dental 
Graduate Dies 

A member of the Class of 1863, Dr. 
Samuel Wagner, D.D.S., died at his 
home in Gabon, Ohio, February 7, 
1937, at the age of 99. He was born 
and raised at Woodsboro, Md., but 
went to Ohio soon after the close of 
the Civil War in 18G5, two years after 
his graduation from the old Baltimore 
Dental College, now the Dental School 
of the University. He began the prac- 
tice of dentistry and served the com- 
munity for a half century. 


As a young man he took a keen in- 
terest in outdoor sports and was a 
member of Gallon's first real baseball 
team. His civic activities included 
the theatrical club, teacher in Sunday- 
School and Knight Templar of the 
Masonic Order. 

His delight was to give a recount 
of his night buggyride with three boy 
companions from Frederick to Get- 
tysburg to hear Lincoln's address. 

Dr. Wagner was also the oldest resi- 
dent of Gabon, Ohio. He is survived 
by two daughters, Mrs. Biehl and 
Mrs. Ransdall, both of Gabon.

Record In Spring Sports Is Exceptiona 



VI A i:v LAND'S Bpring sports are 
about tn complete one of the most

baseball, lacrosse, track and tennis by 
both varsity and freshman combina- 

When Rosj Pollock insisted that the 

deadline for the May issue Of the 

"Bingville Bugle," otherwise the 
Am mm NEWS, had been reached and 
that I must turn in my copy, the var- 
squads in the four sports men- 
tioned had won 28 of -42 contests, and 
the freshmen in the same pastimes 
had taken L6 of L9. 

In fact, it appears that every var- 
sity team is certain to hang up a bet- 
ter record than could reasonably have 
been expected at the outset of spring 
competition. This is particularly true 
of the baseball and track outfits and 
just about as applicable to the la- 
crosse and tennis teams. 

Two Have Finished 

Track and tennis have ended, with 
the cinderpathers taking seven of nine 
dual meets and the rackcters winning 
live of nine matches, but the stickmen 
have yet to meet Penn State at College 
Park on .May 2'.". and the nine takes 
a northern trip, starting June 10, for 
live tilts, engaging Vermont twice, 
Dartmouth, Vale and Temple. 

With Coleman Headley. ace distance 
runner, lost for the season, and Joe 
Ryan, sprinter, incapacitated most of 
the time, the trackmen did remark- 
ably well. They were led by Frank

lie -I art was

a 50-50 campaign. However, with 
Lied Thomas, catcher; Waverly Wheel- 
er, third; Mike Surgent, second, and 
Bill Bryant, outfielder, giving a veter- 
an regular nucleus, and Lefty Wood 
and Dale Patterson, vets, and Charlie 
Weidinger providing a capable slab 
trio, the Terps hit a fast pace to win 
12 of Hi games with only the jaunt 
north left. 

Weidinger, along with the brothers 
Chumbris, Shorty and Lefty, and Ed- 
die Johnson, were sophs to show their 
worth in varsity debuts. 

Jack Egan, outfielder, and Tommy 
Scharf and Gordon Freas, infielders, 
were big helpers, the first named 
playing fairly regularly. 

Joining the others in rising to the 
occasion, the lacrosse team marched 
merrily along in collegiate ranks, 
though beaten in early games by the 
powerful club teams, Mount Washing- 
ton and Baltimore A. C. 

Stickmen Upset Navy 

Starting the season with a task of 
rebuilding the defense, though pos- 
sessed of a fine attack, few looked for 
another victory over Navy such as 
scored on May 15, at Annapolis, when 
the Terps won, 6 to 2. It was the first 
time in years that the Maryland team 

had been looked upon, at best, as hav- 
ing no better than an even chance and 
generally was considered the under- 
dog. But while the attack was soar- 
ing to great heights to penetrate the 
powerful Navy defense, the Maryland 
defense also came through in excep- 
tional style, with Jack Kelly doing by 
far the best job of his career in goal. 
Seventy-five hundred fans watched the 
Terps turn the trick. 

By the time the next issue of the 
News rolls around, we will have a 
complete summary of the entire year 
in sports to dish out, so we will not di- 
gress further on matters now. 

Games In North 

For the good of alumni who may be 
close enough to see some of the tilts, 
here is the list of the ball games to be 
played in the North: 

June 10 and 11 — Vermont at Bur- 
June 12 — Dartmouth at Hanover. 
June 14 — Yale at New Haven. 
June 15 — Temple at Philadelphia. 

Maryland beat Vermont and Temple 
in games at College Park, but lost a 
12-to-ll affair to Dartmouth, that was 
called at the end of the eighth inning 
on account of darkness. 

Pitcher Found 

Dale Patterson of Indian Head, Md., 
Maryland's ace pitcher, failed to make 
the freshman nine and consequently 
did not come up to the varsity in his 
sophomore year. He was a candidate 
for the infield as a freshman and 
started pitching as a soph in a frater- 
nity intra-mural loop. He came to the 
varsity last year as a junior. He was 
only 16 years old when he entered col- 
lege and now is much taller and .'50 
pounds heavier than when he was a 



There are five all-time all-Maryland 
football players on the University 
campus. Hill Supplee and Al Heagy, 
ends, both in the Chemistry Depart- 
ment ; Roy Mackert, tackle, head of 

Physical Education; Al Woods, quar- 
terback, recently named assistant pro- 
fessor in Agronomy, and Bill Guckey- 
son, senior student. Supplee was in 
the class of '26, Heagy was '31, Mack- 
ert was '22, and Woods was '33. 

Holzapfel Good 

Norman Holzapfel, of Hagerstown, 
has been one of the outstanding mem- 
bers of the Terp freshman lacrosse 
team, although the game was entirely 
new to him when he came to College 
Park. He made the grade as regular 
center and his stickhandling and play 
along other lines has been exceptional 
considering the circumstances.

Riflemen Win 
Third Corps Trophy 

We were up on the range the other 
day, and while we won' engaged in 

clearing the dust from atop the cabi- 
net in which the records are kept, we 

were greeted by the entire varsity and 
freshman rifle squads. 

It seems that they had been called 
to hear some kind of a proclamation, 
which had recently been issued. After 
a time we were very much surprised 
to see Major Ward, who incidentally 
coached these aggregations, walk qui- 
etly in and just as quietly sit down 
and take from his pocket an extremely 
long, but official document. Having all 
his men around him he began to read. 
In the course of his lecture we dis- 
covered several important facts. First, 
that the paper was merely "General 
Orders No. IV Second, that it was 
concerned with the various honors 
achieved by Maryland's neophyte and 
veteran marksmen during the current 
season. Finally, that this group of 
riflemen must have been fairly good 
at punching the centers from the lit- 
tle white targets. 

It seems that this Varsity aggre- 
gation won the championship of the 
Third Corps Area, and was being re- 
warded by a silver cup and ten bronze 
medals. Then, they carried off the 
title, to the W. R. Hearst competition 
for which Davis, Jensen. Welch, Mat- 
tingly, and W. Davis garnered shields, 
and gold medals. In their final achieve- 
ment, the winning of the N. R. A. 
Middle Atlantic postal league, the 
varsity sharpshooters took ten bronze 

Not content with these honors the 
remainder of the squad, the freshmen, 
pt the field to win the National 
Intercollegiate team championship for 
which Meeks, Riley, Woodward, Preble, 
and Laughhead received bronze med- 
als. Here the medal pinning ceased 
for a time, until Jensen was pinned 
for taking the Mehring Trophy. Mat- 
tingly took the award for a new range 
three position score of 289, Riley car- 
ried off the frosh high match average, 
and Lanigan received recognition for 
being the most improved marksman.

that a certain genial army officer had 
been behind all of this glory and fine 
shooting, and that pe I'Ped for-

"l/fARYLAND'S CATTLE JUDGING TEAM competing against twenty-one 
colleges in the annual contest sponsored by Hoard's Dairymen, largest 
dairy magazine in the country, finished first to be declared the national cham- 
pionship team. 

Maryland was followed in order by Washington, Kansas State, South Dakota, 
and Texas. 

Members of the championship team are, front row, left to right: Harold 
Gathart. Richard Phelps, Charles Downey. Wayne Fitzwater, and Paul Gal- 

Back row, left to light, are Warren Gilbertson, Abraham Gottwals, Alva 
Baker, Burton McFadden, Arthus Wright, and Professor L. W. Ingham, coach. 

Husky Freshman 

Maryland has a versatile athlete in 
Charlie Norton, husky freshman. Nor- 
ton played halfback on the yearling 
eleven last fall, was the regular center 
on the basket-ball quint, and is a star 
pitcher on the ball team. Recently 
when the cubs did not have a ball 
game, Norton helped the yearling 
tracksters beat Gallaudet College by 
scoring nine points on seconds in the 
javelin, shot and discus. He had no 
practice in these events. 

Catcher Thomas 
Turns Professional 

Another of Terpdom's stellar ath- 
letes deserted collegiate ranks last 
week when Fred (Knocky) Thomas 
started on the trail which seems des- 
tined to end in the majors as he left 
College Park to join the Trenton Sena- 
tors of the New York-Pennsylvania 

The Old Line catcher was signed by 
the Washington Club of the American 
League and was immediately optioned 
to the minor league team. 

He Loves 
The Game 

Eddie Johnson, son of the famous 
Walter, is making a fine ball player 
for the Terps. Playing in the out- 
field he has hit around .380 with 16 
games gone. It is possible that he 
may try pitching next year to see 
if there is a chance of following in 
Dad's footsteps in that line. He won 
his letter in basket-ball during the 
past season, too. 


May Be Back 

Bill Guckeyson, Maryland's four- 
letter athlete, may lie back at College 
Park for the 1937-38 term, ami if ho 
has another year in each track, base- 
ball and basket-ball. He didn't play 
basket-ball or compete in track in his 
junior year, playing baseball instead 
of the latter, due to nerve trouble in 
his shoulder. Guckeyson had hoped 

to enter W • ' Point, but the outlook W 

that an appointment is n<<\ available. 
If he returns he doubtless will ens

The Victor E. Albright Scholarship 

A SCHOLARSHIP, in memory of his 
father and mother, has been estab- 
lished at the University by Honorable 
Victor K. Albright, ;i nath i i rett 
County, Bid., and now president of 
the Randall State Bank, Madison. Wis. 

Mr. Albright has made available "to 
the Hoard of Regents of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland, its successors and 
assigns, the sum of five thousand 
dollars ($5,000), in trust, to consti- 
tute a p irpetual endowment, the in- 
come each year to be used for a schol- 
arship for the benefit of graduates of 
high schools of Garrett County. Md." 
The scholarship will be known as the 
Victor E. Albright Scholarship. 

In accordance with the requests of 
the donor, the scholarship is to be 
awarded "to a boy or girl of good 
character, of fair health, of the Cauca- 
sian or white race, who was born and 
reared in Garrett County, Md., and 
who graduates from a high school in 
Garrett County, Md., in the year in 
which the scholarship is awarded." 

The %'alue of the scholarship, "Two 
Hundred Dollars ($200.00) per an- 
num, is to be paid by the Board of Re- 
gents to the scholar selected, in such 
installments during the school year as 
the Committee on Scholarships and 
Student Aid of the University of Mary- 
land, or its successors, may recom- 

The purpose of this scholarship is 
three-fold: first, to urge a boy or girl 
to do his best scholastic work in each 
year of his high school course so as to 
become (digible for this award; sec- 
ond, to encourage or assist him in se- 
curing a college education; third, to 
impel him to do creditable scholastic 
work in every semester of his college 

Usually a scholar will be appointed 
every four years, but through low 
grades or other causes a vacancy may 
occur at any time and a scholar may 
be appointed in any year. Therefore. 
B copy of this instrument shall he sent 
by the above-mentioned Committee 

every high school principal in Gar- 
rett County. Md., once each year soon 
after the opening of high schools in 

the fall. The principal of each high 

,.,l in Garrett County. Md.. shall 
giv< tudents a full knowledge 

of the terms of this scholarship twice 

h year by posting a copy of same 

the school bulletin board, by pub- 
lishing in the local press, or bj read- 
the full student body, to 

the end that all eligible students may 

be given an opportunity to compete 
throughout their high school courses 
for the scholarship here offered. 

The philanthropic act by Mr. Al- 
bright has exemplified a commenda- 
tory gesture in behalf of the youth of 
our State and nation. Although he 
was never a student at the University, 
he has shown an interest in the services 
the University is rendering the people 
of the State. His undergraduate days 
were spent at West Virginia Confer- 
ence Seminary at Buchannon, gradu- 
ating in 1898. From Ohio Wesleyan 
University he received his A. B. in 
1901, and in 1904 his Master of Arts 


degree from Harvard. Columbia, in 
1909, bestowed upon him a Doctor of 
Philosophy degree. Intermingled with 
his graduate work was four years of 
teaching. At Ohio Wesleyan he was 
a member of the Sigma Chi social 

Out in Preston County, W. Va., 
is a town bearing the name of Al- 
bright, from which migrated Mr. Al- 
bright's grandfathers, settling near 
Cranesville, W. Va. Here his father, 
Edmund, and his mother. Nancy Jane 
Albright, were born. It was shortly 
after his father's return from the 
Civil War when he married and set- 
tled on a nearby farm. A few years 
later he purchased a farm just over 
the line in Garrett County, Md. Here 
Victor Albright, the only son of a fam- 
ily of five children, was born. 

Mr. Albright's ancestry goes back 
to great-grandfathers, both named Al- 
bright, descendants of early Pennsyl- 
vania Germans, who migrated from 
York, Pa., in the early part of the 
nineteenth century and settled near 
the present known town of Albright, 
in Preston County, W. Va. 

In 1910, Mr. Albright married Miss 
Georgia French and went to the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin as instructor in 
English. After four years of teaching 
he organized the Randall State Bank, 
serving first as cashier for three years, 
then as president for the past 19 years. 

He is the author of "The Shake- 
spearian Stage," a literary treatise 
which was published in 1909. 

The gesture by Mr. Albright is cer- 
tainly a generous consideration in be- 
half of the youth of Garrett County, 
Md., and the News takes this occa- 
sion to express laudatory praises for 
his splendid act.

Keller Nite 

When Charley Keller. '.37. former 
Old Line diamond star, now a profes- 
al ball player with the Newark 
Club, appeared at Oriole Park the 
alumni group of Baltimore staged a 
reception for him. Keller was called 
from his dugout to the home plate 
prior to the start of the game and 
here he was met by Ches Tawney. pres- 
ident of the Baltimore alumni. Burton 
Shipley, his former coach, and Geary 
Eppley, director of athletics. In rec- 
tion of his fine accomplishments 
he '■ nted with a traveling bag 

by Shipley on behalf of the Bal- 
timore alumni. Keller's mother who 
in the stands, was presented with 
a bouquet of flowers by Ches Tawney 
on behalf of the Baltimore group. 

Following the game Keller wai 
rounded by quite a mob of enthusias- 
tic rooters from the Old Line school. 

Norwood Sothoron monopolized him 
for a while in a broadcast under the 
auspices of Whea' 

Spring Mixer 
Well Attended 

Maintaining their drive to build a 
large alumni group in Baltimore, a 

mixer was held on April 16 at the 

Lord Baltimore Hotel. The affair was 

well attended and is certain to become 
an annual function. 

George Schmidt, '25, a former pro- 
fessor of the School of Speech at Syra- 
cuse University, gave a very interest- 
ing talk on his experiences with the 
French Foreign Legion. George has 
traveled quite extensively in Europe 
and his talks are enlightening. Dr. 
H. C. Byrd, Ms. president of the Uni- 
versity, gave a few brief remarks, as 
did Geary Eppley, director of athletics. 

F. Gordon Hammond, '84, secretary 
of the group, made several announce- 
ments anil read a resolution from the 
Alumni Board of the association rec- 
ognizing the gift from the Baltimore 
group which inaugurates the Alumni 
Scholarship Fund. 

President Chester W. Tawney. '2\\ 
was toastmaster for the occasion. 

Before and after the talks, the alum- 
ni and many faculty members could 
be seen chatting and generally getting 
acquainted which is a most ideal way 
of perpetuating the real University

May Day Was 
Well Attended 

She was crowned Queen of the May, 
Miss Flora Edith Waldman, an honor 
graduate in the College of Home Eco- 
nomics. "Flo,"' as she is known about 
the campus, bedecked herself with 
many honors as an undergraduate. 
Among her many offices were presi- 
dent of the V. W. C. A., secretary of 
her class in sophomore and junior 
years, and secretary of Student Gov- 
ernment in her senior year, a member 
of Mortar Hoard, the Riding Club and 
Rifle Team, adding to her honors the 
Women's Citizenship Prize. She is a 
member of A. 0. Pi and several hon- 
orary sororities. 

In the queen's court were Jerry 
Schuh, M irj Bee Crisp. Florence Hill. 
Jean Barnsley, Isabel Resnitsky. The 
Queen was crowned by Miss Dorothy 

Hobbs, president of the Women's

of the May Lay. Mrs. 
• W. Whitehurst. first woman 

member of the Hoard of Regents, Mrs. 
Elizabeth Hook Day, '20, first coed 
graduate of the University, Mrs. Zita 
Ensor Hufford, '2:5, first Queen of the 
-May. and first president of the Wom- 
en's Student Government, Miss Ester 
Williams Newell, '2 1. 

The largest crowd in the history of 
.May Day attended the exercises which 

were well presented. 

Military Annual 
Competitive Drill 

It was a damp day for the R. 0. T. 
C. boys on May 17 when the annual 
competitive drill was held. 

Despite the rain it was as usual a 
very colorful affair and there was just 
as much zip in the drill as if nothing 
were wrong. The parade was the final 
formation at which time awards were 
presented. Company C, commanded 
by Capt. Irving P. Mendelsohn, cap- 
tured first honors. Second platoon of 
Company A, commanded by Lieut. 
Parks Patterson, was tops among the 
platoons. The squad drill was won 
by Corporal Harvey Kreuzberg, Com- 
pany I, second platoon, third battalion. 

The individual honors for the best 
soldier probably attracts as much in- 
terest as any other. This was won by 
Francis Zalesak, brother of E. F. 
Zalesak, '25, newly-elected president 
of the Alumni Association. 

The drill climaxed a great year for 
the Unit and for the fifteenth time won 
the excellent rating among R. O. T. C.
